Not only is Tromsø a darling town with charming, colorful houses built on hills overlooking the harbor, it’s a magnificent spot to see the Northern Lights! If the Northern Lights are on your bucket list, I highly recommend Tromso as a great spot to view them. Of course nature is going to have to give you a gift, but the ones that we saw the first night were absolutely phenomenal. I may never see a natural phenomenon of that caliber again!
Here is the quick recap of Days 2-4 of my around the world trip in Tromsø, Norway in the Arctic Circle. Each day I’ll be recapping the high and low point of each day along with answering a question about my RTW trip.
Highlights of the Day: Nothing may ever top the Northern Lights!!!! This is what we came here to see, so everything else was a bonus! We were lucky to see them on both nights and boy did we get a show!
Learn from my mistakes!: There is nothing open on Sundays, so be prepared to eat ahead of time or plan on eating a $30 Burger King Meal like I did!
Best Local Spot: There was a great local food festival where I got to try some great traditional foods like Lefsa, which is a delicious dessert and some freeze dry meals that we ate while seeing the Northern Lights that were shockingly delicious. My favorite one was Chicken Tikka Masala!
Great view: Cable Car to the top of the Mountain that looks over Tromso. This is best viewed when there isn’t a hail storm!!
