Tromsø Botanisk Hage

Last weekend we had a short three-generation family break in Tromsø. I’ll split the pictures over the next few days.

Susanna escorted grandma and grandad on the Hurtigruter (the big boat) from Finnsnes whilst Sarah and I drove (about 3 times the distance due to the necessity to go around the fjords). No pictures of this bit.

One of the highlights of the weekend was a visit to the University of Tromsø Botanisk Hage (botanic garden), rated in the worlds top 5 by one of the BBC gardening show presenters. It contains arctic and alpine plants from every continent, many of which we recognised from the fields and mountains here.
