I flew to Tromso in search of the lights and found a lovely town.
The first impression was it was a small place until I walked over the bridge to the Artic Church and after another 10min walk I arrived at the Cable car ride, 4 mins later, I was over 400 mtrs above Tromso with the best views. (100Nok... about £11)
For beer lovers, you will find "Mack" beer and before 3 you can have a tour, its a cracking beer, I have lived in Norway four years and it is the best!
Remember, things are expensive in this country but if you go for a burger king/ mcdonalds you are going to Hell (a place near Trondheim!) If you want a fantastic warm, fresh sandwich then there is a bakery in front of the old church in the center of town. for 100Nok you get a great sarnie and hot chocky (closes at 6)
I then took a few beers in town before taking the best boat trip in the world (Hurtigruten) going south to Trondheim through the Lofoten Islands...Wow.
Great Point.... Cable car
Bad Point... Railway (Jernaberten) Bar
