Any suggestions?

I’m leaving for tromso in a few days now. I will arrive Thursday. and stay untill Tuesday.

I have already tours planned (Friday night NL tour , Sunday: Dogsledding, Monday: Fjord tour)

I read a lot in this forum about boat trips (or bus trips) but who can tell me what is really worth the effort to do on the Friday or Saturday?

I know it will depend on the weather a lot. I probably rent a car to chase the nothern light myself for a day or two so if you know something to drive to, please let me know.

i ask this because i only have a short period of time, and i like to get info from the people who really know the area.

Thanks in advance for your help,

If the sky are clear on the coast then the Lyngen alps - Skjervoy round trip are a wonderful thing to do...

But, please don't forget that Tromso it's worth a day of your time too; the cable car, the Arctic Cathedral, the Polar museum, Polaria, Planetarium, Perspektivet, Tromso museum (Sami history) and a walk in the city with all the cafes and bars.

Hi! We are going to be in Tromso for one day in July. The 28th to be exact. Want to do the Polaria, The Arctic Cathedral and the Science Center (Planetarium). Do the places really open at 11 am??? Or maybe a bit earlier??? That would make my planning tight!! And I'd like to see the film in the Planetarium....The ship doesn't wait!!!

Thank you!
