  • Fjellheisen - lift to a viewpoint

    Tromsø Things to Do

    A short lift to a viewpoint above Tromsdalen part of Tromsø is worth it when the weather is nice. it is also a good starting point for hikes around the mainland mountaineous side of Tromsø, and even a hike or traverse of Tromsdalstind peak. Like in Bergen the viewpoint is called Fløyfjellet. In fact, I'd highly recommend a visit here when the...

  • Polaria - polar information centre

    Tromsø Things to Do

    Polaria is one of the best places to go in Tromsø if you have children, if the weather is bad, if you forgot giftshopping and if you want to learn something about the polar environment. This is NOT the Polar Museum (see separate tip), but an affiliate to both the Norwegian Polar Institute (next door) and the Polar Museum. It provides a popularized...

    Skjervøy Transportation

Southbound steamers arrive daily at 7:45PM, departing shortly thereafter for the journey to Bergen.To get to or from Skjervøy, you'll normally take a "port-to-port" trip.

  • Sami Couple

    Skjervøy Favorites

    It was quite interesting to see a Sami couple in traditional dress board the coastal steamer. In this case, they were not dressed to impress tourists. They were merely wearing their traditional clothing for a trip, much as I might wear a suit on a business trip. I didn't get to meet them personally, but they remained on the boat and got off at...

  • Breathtaking Scenery

    Skjervøy Favorites

    While sitting aboard our coastal steamer, we couldn't help but notice the gorgeous scenery all around. Look past the breakwater (again way out of proportion with the size of the village to accommodate the huge coastal steamer) and admire the magnificent mountains.

    Botnhamn Shopping

    This is a typical local supermarket. The only one left. (used to have 3 some decades back)Check it out. A small cafe on the second floor serves you coffee and Waffles and if you are lucky they might have a hamburger also. Check out the freezer - they have some good frozen fish and meat.Upstairs, you can buy fishing equipment, boot, toys, cutlery,...

    Botnhamn Tourist Traps

    Please visit Botnhamn anyway, but if you're only passing by and hope to get over to Kvaløya be aware that The Ferry between Botnhamn and Brennsholmen is only open during the summertime. Check out if it goes or not. If not you will really be stuck in either in Botnhamn or at Brennsholmen and driving around takes quite some...

    Harstad Things to Do

    One of the real cannons can still be visited in the mountains closeby Harstad, BUT it was not part of the tour by the Hurtigruten-excursion. At least we saw some repilca-parts and explanations in the museum.Adolfkanone was the largest landbased Cannon of WW II, with calibre 40,6 cm. The cannon had a length of 21,5 meters and a weight of 158,664...

  • By Hurtigruten to Harstad

    Harstad Transportation

    Hurtigruten has a regular stop in Harstad on the northbound voyage at 06.45 - 08.00am and in the southbound voyage between 08.00 and 08.30am. So all you can do is take a short walk to town, BUT all the sights that are explained here in my page are much too far away to do that while the ship is in port.So you have to take the bustour from Harstad to...

    Fishing, climbing, pure nature,...

    by Lomma Written Dec 19, 2005

    Fishing: Go hire a cabin with a fishing boat - and fish till you drop in the fjords
    or you can buy a fish card and go up in many of the small lakes around and fish for trout for example

    Climbing: Many mountains to climb, but be carefull - the stones are old and full of ghosts.

    Pure Nature: Just be in the nature

    Relaxation: If you need quietness - you will find it here

    Gåsvær Things to Do

    Believe me or not but there are many whales in the Norwegian Sea. I saw them on a regular basis on my daily walk to university in Tromsø Sound.But I'm also almost sure you will see whales if you take the trip to Gåsvær through Kvalsundet. This sound is not very trafficated by ships, so you could call it a paradise for whales and other...

    Gåsvær Favorites

    One of my nicest Gåsvær memories is the beach barbecue we did there. We brought everything with us (and took also the rubbish back) so that we didn't hurt Mother Nature.It's so nice to sit on this sandy beach, eating sausage (or fresh caught fish) and watching the lovely scenery of wild North Norwegian nature.Picture taken from...
