From the airport to the Tromsø center, you may take either TAXI or bus. the bus costs 45 kr pp, while the TAXI costs roughly 130 kr. If you have more than 3 person, take a TAXI as the bus comes only every hour.
There is an airport in Troms but if you want to see more Norway and maybe Sweden or Finland, take a car. It's very easy to drive around there from country to another. There's no special tolls, so you don't have to show your passport or ID. Nordic countries has co-oparation contract, so it's very easy to drive there and see those three countries in North. But if you want to go from Finland to Russia, you need a visa. Border traffic there is very bad and things go very slow and there has been lot of lines. So I prefer you to stay in Scandinavia. Russia is an interesting place, but you if you want to go there - take a lot of time with you.
If you want to see the Lyngen Alps you must take two ferries: the one from Breivikeidet to Svensby, the other one from Lyngseidet-Olderdalen.
