      Hello, it seems impossible to travel from Svolvaer to Abisko in one day with public transport,
      I can't find any connection. Trains and busses arrive too late in Narvik to have the right connection.
      Any tips? hitchhiking? Did I miss something? To be precise: it's about the 5th of march 2014.

      Bus pass in Tromso Norway

      Narvik Jul 18, 2013 at 8:13 PM

      Can you buy a Tromso city 3 day pass in Narvik or do you have to get the passes in Tromso? I won't be getting into Tromso during operating hours so I was hoping I could buy one in Narvik before catching the 100 but to Tromso. If I can't buy a pass in Narvik do you know of a place that will sell bus passes on weekends? Single rides are such a rip off.

      I am doing a photo trip for Northern Lights Mar 5-10 /13 and am trying to figure out a packing list. Temps on line show around freezing, but not sure what wind, rain/snow and dark of night might be like. I'm from Canada so have lots of heavy winter gear, but my question is how much will I need. Heavy winter boots, or hiking boots and warm socks? Wind/rain overpants and long underwear, or insulated snowmobile type pants? Tips from anyone who has been there in March would be helpful, or especially anyone who has done a Northern lights photo trip?

      Hi I was planning to catch the Hurtiguten from Bodo to Harstad in May 2013, arriving in Harstad at 06.45. I then planned to travel by bus to Narvik, via the airport, to catch the Stockholm train. I have just found out that the train has been rescheduled from the afternoon to 11.38 in the morning. The only buses I can find from Harstad miss this train by about 15 mins. Is there any other way of getting from Harstad to Narvik?

      Bus from Bodo Harbour to Airport, and supermarket suggestions

      Nordland Sep 17, 2012 at 3:42 AM

      Would anyone know the bus numbers (I think it's 5 and 14), frequency and fare from Bodo harbour to the airport. I can't make sense of 177nordland.no.
      There is a Rimi supermarket across from the Radisson in which we can get supplies. We are on the 19:05 flight to Narvik, which doesnt get in till 19:45, then on the 09:35 train out in the morning. I think the Narvik supermarket by the station doesnt open till 09:00, and everything is shut by 20:00. so we should get supplies in Bodo.
      If you have any typical Norewgian picnic food suggestions, or other nice food stores in Bodo to recommend (preferably in the station to harbour area), I'd be very grateful.

      Takk

      Places to stay in Lofoten & fishing trips?

      Lofoten Mar 22, 2012 at 8:21 AM

      Hello Everyone!

      I’m planning to make a trip to Lofoten this june and I have a few questions which I need help on.
      First of all, I’m planning to head over to Lofton by taking a ferry from bodo. I’ll be trying get around by bus, bikes or just walking. (I won’t be renting a car since I don’t have a driver’s license.)

      1. Is Reine accessible and a good place to stay? Or would it be better to stay in other villages like Henningsvaer or Å?

      2. Due to a budget constraint, I would prefer to rent a room in a guesthouse or an apartment rather than a Rorbuer. Are there any other similar accommodations in Reine like this? --> lofoten-info.no/hotellet/eng...

      3. Am I able to go for fishing trips like this --> datadesign.ws/x-Hellvaag/Eng... in Reine?

      What would a native of Narvik, or Norway in general, put in a picnic basket ?. We arrive late in Narvik on the bus from Fauske, and then leave on the train in the morning, so I am hoping to locate a supermarket in Narvik who I can pay to deliver some food for us to the campsite, which looks like the grooviest place to spend a summer night (they have chalets).
