    Tromsø Things to Do

    This is one of two major art galleries in Tromsø (the other is the Tromsø Gallery of Contemporary Art or Tromsø Kunstforening, which we didn’t get round to visiting). As the name suggests, it focuses on art about and from Northern Norway, covering the period from the early 19th century to the present day. It also has temporary exhibitions – when we...

  • Flying to Tromsø

    Tromsø Transportation

    We flew to Tromsø with Scandinavian Airlines from London Heathrow, via Oslo. It was quite an early flight, although delayed a little by snow at Heathrow. As it wasn’t a budget airline we had expected to be served at least a light breakfast but once on board we discovered that only tea and coffee were complimentary and as we were hungry we had to...

    Skjervøy Transportation

    Northbound coastal steamers arrive in Skjervøy daily at 10:45PM, departing for Kirkenes roughly 30 minutes later. 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. The website has a list of up-to-date fares and cabin options....

  • 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 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...

    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
