Hi, my husband and I will be travelling to Oslo on Dec 24 and would like to go to Tromso to watch the Northern lights and do whatever is fun there. I have looked many options including the Hurtigruten which obviously is rather expensive for late reservations. Trains and buses all seem a bit confusing. Normally we hire a car on our vacation trips, but everyone seems to advising against that during winter traveling and unpredictable weather in Norway.
I would appreciate any advice and would simply be forever grateful if anyone could share a detailed (proven) travel route from Oslo to Tromso!
