We are going to Tromso in the end of february / beginning of march. We live in Spain and never make it further north tan Hamburg, so we probably have to face buying a lot of warm clothing we'll never need again! Having learnt that most of the businesses that take tourists on "Northern Light Chases" provide extra warm clothes & even boots, there remains the question:
What do people wear for just walking around in the city? Or, for taking a bus to somewhere else, or a ferry ... etc etc. For instance. are warm shoes with warm socks enough, or does it have to be moon boots? Pants, coats?
I'd be really grateful for some advice!
I’m traveling up North with Hurtigruten to Kirkenes at the end of December. In Kirkenes I will spend 1 night at the snow hotel, do a half day dog sledding trip, and do the tour offered by Hurtigruten.
I have the option to spend up to two nights in Kirkenes, but was unsure if there is actually enough to do aside from winter activities. I don’t plan on doing any other ones like snow mobiling or King crab fishing, etc. Is there enough to see and do culturally that I should stay two nights, or is one full day enough in Kirkenes?
Thanks in advance for your help!
We are planning to pass through Hamar, arrive 2110 and then catch a flight from Oslo at 07:15 to meet cousins in Stavanger.
We booked hotel in Hamar because my grandmother was born there (then moved to Oslo). We just wanted to drive around, then leave early in the morning.
I misread the bus schedule and now see that it stops in Hamar only to allow disembarkation.
Does anyone have idea of how to best see the town (taxi?, anyone know a local guide?) and how to get to airport on a Sunday morning? Should we go back to Mjosbrua Vest for the bus or is there any shuttle service all the way to the airport.
We are 3 so splitting the cost will help.
