We left Stockholm for Tromsø for an overnight stopover.
We thought it would be nice to see Tromsø in daylight. The last time we were here in December 2017 (Christmas Magic), there was hardly any daylight.
So we thought to have a few hours to check it out. Even though our flight from Stockholm was delayed, we still managed to get here in time for a few hours of daylight.
Ahhh, we remember the yellow wooden cathedral in the city centre.
And this time we could see what the city looked like.
Woohoo! Fluffy snow!!!
Shall I? I had to do this ….
What are you looking at?
I love snow on my face!
We walked to the harbour to see if we can find a Hurtigruten ferry docked – and maybe we’ll see Natasha and David.
But it was not the same ferry …
And we found one last standing lit tree – there were a lot of them when we were here over Christmas.
We headed back to our hotel – The Edge which is part of the Clarion Hotel. They are dog friendly – everywhere – but they weren’t sure about their restaurant.
So we asked and they have never had that question before – so they assumed we could.
Early rise next morning – and we saw the morning light. We went out for a walk and I climbed a mountain!
Mum, what is he doing?
It was time to leave for the airport – on our way to our final destination.
But alas, our flight was cancelled due to strong winds blowing in the wrong direction. I think it was Gareth that followed us up here. That meant we had another 24 hours in Tromsø – and we went about walking …
Went to play on the snow again.
We’ve checked into another dog-friendly hotel – Radisson Blue.
A beautiful view from the top of the hotel.
View from our room – the Cathedral in the distance.
Wonder if we’ll take off tomorrow to our next destination.
May’s comment: This was meant to be a stopover – mainly because the weather conditions at this time of year make flights unreliable. Tromsø is also a pretty town – we liked it the last time we were here but we didn’t see much of it. Sure enough we went to the airport on the day of our departure and the flight was cancelled. Well, with the delay, we found another dog friendly hotel!
The funny thing about being here, especially in these two dog-friendly hotels – whenever I asked if we are allowed into the hotel restaurant, they often look stunned and say they have never been asked that question before. They wondered why not. And so I went along with dog in tow!
