Tromsø weekend, part 2 (part 1 is here).
We stayed at the Clarion Hotel in Tromsø which is on the waterfront with great views (between the low cloud) of the harbour, the ‘arctic cathedral’ and the cable car up to the mountains. The hotel was excellent and good value.
Museum visits included Polaria, the university Polar Museum and an old seal hunting ship (Polarstjerna – the Pole Star). Life here even 50 years ago was much hard than today!
As well as the museum visits, we also enjoyed the exploring the city centre. And wonders never cease: we found an arctic aborigine!
