Day 19 Lyngenalps to Tromsø 

On our last day in Norway we sadly had to leave our lovely little house in Åroybukt to drive back to Tromsø. To avoid a long drive we decided to take the ferry in Svensby. It only takes about 20min and with 120NOK the price is ok. After we arrived in Tromsø we headed to... Continue Reading →
