My partner and I will be in Tromso in Feb. We'll stay 2 nights in the city, but wanted to stay 2 nights in the countryside too. We'd love to stay at the Lyngen Lodge but at £400 per room per night it's just too expensive for us. Can anyone recommend another hotel in the countryside accessible from Tromso that has a nice cosy lodge/log cabin feel? Our budget is up to £200 per room per night.
Also, do you stand a better chance of seeing the northern lights from a countryside hotel than from within the city?
Thanks in advance!
