There are no flights for Tromso from Torp. Hiring a car will be very expensive and time consuming - Tromso is appr. 2000 kms north of Torp, and you must expect to use several days on the journey. A one way car hire is also much more expensive than a round trip.
You can have a flight from Torp to Trondheim with Wideroe:
and then have a choice to continue on this airline with a transfer in Trondheim, or have a choice between SAS and Norwegian airlines for the trip to Tromso:
You will also have the option of using the train, but it doesn't go further north than Bodo and you will have to use bus or a flight for the remaining distance.

Thankis all for that info - hadn't really checked the distances v's time available so might 'rethink' my plan !
