How to get to the Fjords

My family and I will be in Tromso for 4D3N.

We have booked a NL tour which includes most winter activities.

However, there is leisure time on our 2nd day from the morning till about 3-4pm. (Our NL tour starts at 5pm)

Was thinking of visiting the fjords?

But how do we get there by public transport? Or is it necessary to book a fjord tour ?

I found one pretty affordable fjord tour


If I'm able to get there by public transport, this booking is not necessary.

Do guide me! Else I probably will be booking a 2hour snow shoe tour.

Tromsø itself sits on an island in a fjord.

If you go on a NL tour with a guide you will most likely drive along one of the main fjords in the area.

You can always take the local bus, no. 425, I think, to Ersfjordbotn.

This is the famous "Northern lights fjord" where the beautiful picture of Aurora, like a snake, are dancing down to you between high mountains on both side...

Very beautiful scenery in the day time, and if you like to have a break, please check out http://www.bryggejentene.no
