After a Night on our Hurtigruten ship ‘Midnatsol’, we were ready for another day in paradise. This is the fifth part of our Arctic Norway series and our arrival with Hurtigruten on Lofoten Islands is truly unforgettable – just maybe not quite in the sense that we had expected …
After Nigel’s traumatising first skiing experience, he was ready for some luxury. In part four of our Arctic Norway Road (and Sea) Trip it’s finally time for us to board the gorgeous Hurtigruten Ship Midnatsol. We only had one night on board and we certainly made the most of every aspect. Including the various 15-minute stopovers in random little towns.
In our last video, we showed you how we spent our first day in the Arctic.
Will Nigel discover that he’s an ace skier, will Martha buy more Norwegian branded clothing and will we eat more cake? All of these questions and more will be answered in this third part.
Our second day in Tromsø had snow, shopping and skiing in store for us. One of the three did not turn out too well from Nigel’s perspective. Take a guess which one!
This day did not end after dinner, because at around Midnight, we boarded our Hurtigruten ship ‘Midnatsol’ to sail to Lofoten Islands …
The Troms on foot
In part one of our Norwegian Arctic road trip series we took you on the road with us. All the way to the Arctic from literally our doorstep. In this second part, we now finally wake up in beautiful Tromsø. Our first day in the Arctic takes us to the harbour, across the bridge to the Arctic Cathedral. It sees us contemplating property purchases, overeating on unexpected delicacies and booking an activity for day 3 that will change Nigel’s athletic game forever …
Only the first in the Arctic Series …
You may already know that March 2016 saw us set off on our very first Arctic adventure when we explored Northern Norway’s Tromsø and then jumped on a Hurtigruten ship to Lofoten Island.
We are beginning to publish a series of articles about this memorable week and in the first post of the series, we promised you a video to go with the article. We are not known for breaking our promises.
Bumpy Ride into Tromsø
So in this first part of our video series we are travelling from Northern Ireland to Northern Norway. The views from the plane will give you goosebumps – and it certainly was a bumpy ride for us.
Part two of the series explores how we coped on the day after.
