Tromso - Norway

Tromsø  (Romsa in Northern Sami, nominative case, Tromssa in Finnish) is a city and municipality in the county of Troms, Norway.The first church on the island of Tromsøya was erected in the 13th century, after the area had been inhabited since the end of the ice age. A redoubt, Skansen, was probably built during the 17th century. Tromsø was issued its city charter in 1794 by King Christian VII. The city was established as a municipality January 1, 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). The rural municipalities of Tromsøysund and Ullsfjord, and most of Hillesøy, were merged with Tromsø Ja

"Tromso is *amazing,* esp in summer. I find cheap accommodation through . Check this out: If that link works, it should take you to a list of accommodations in Tromso. Here is a list of 4 gjestehus/pensjonat (bed & breakfasts & hostels) Fjellheim Sommerhotell has very reasonable rates, starting at 500kr a night. I've heard it's very nice, and it's 15min from the city center. You'll probably want a hostel in the town center, as that's where most of the museums/bars are. The local tourism company, destinasjon tromso, has easy to navigate listings in English: Have a good trip! "
moudy007 :

how can i travel from Umea to Tromso , is there any direct flights , train line or bus line ? and how much it is? shall i have to pass Stockholm and Oslo ? and how much it wil be if so ?

Bernadette :
"Your best bet is the train between the closer cities.... there is also bus service available in all these cities between Norway/Sweden as well. It is not cheap to travel over there at all...but I suggest bus between Umeå and Tromso as well as Stockholm and Öslo. Depends on how much time you have to spare to travel. But if you are going from south to the north, I would fly as it would only take an hour, and it is approximately $300 US round trip to go from south of Norway/Sweden to the north or either country."

TROMSO, Norway This small country, which has a vast treasure of undersea oil and an intense civic concern about global warming, is struggling with a dilemma -- but it is one that most nations would envy.
