We live just north of Sydney on the beach. Our friends don't quite understand why we think it would be great to go north of the Arctic Circle in early January when we could be on our local beach -but what do they know ? Not as much as you, seemingly, MetteS !
Your pictures of Tromso are great as is the advice you provide.
We're heading up to Tromso in early January for 2 nights to experience days without much light and hopefully to see some northern lights (not that we're necessarily expecting to be lucky enough to see them).
Where would you suggest staying ? We're looking for somewhere typical or charming rather than luxurious. Must be warm, though. We've got 3 kids with us.
There seems to be plenty to do for a couple of days with the museums etc. Can you get up to the viewpoints in the mountains that your photos are taken from in the winter, MetteS ?
Thanks in advance.
