Day 6 – Board Hurtigruten > Lofoten (Svolvaer Terminal) > Havern Holiday Home (AirBnB)
Day 5 was the start of another exciting journey venturing the Norway shoreline, Norwegian Sea and its majestic fjords via the Hurtigruten cruise. The cruise that we boarded, MS Kong Harald was last refurbished in 2016, with length of 122 meters. This ship also allows carriage of vehicles but not campervans, minivans and trailers. Size of the ship is not considered the huge type, but also with enough corners and sections for us to explore. Mainly would be panorama lounge, sun deck, hot tubs, restaurants and bars.
Day 5 – Tromso > Polaria > Tromsø Library and City Archive (Beautiful architecture) > The Polar Museum
After good rest and recharged, we woke up the next day trying to treasure the day light as much as we could. There is a section next to the hotel reception counter that sells breakfast pack and some convenient food.
Day 4 – TOS airport (Arrive) > Hotel Xpress Tromso
Day 4 in Norway was a transit day for us, travelling up north to Tromso from Bergen. Tromso is a northern city which also known as the “Paris of the North”. It is also one of the northern most city we visited so far, 350km north of Artic Circle.
It was an earliest flight in the morning; we remembered the airport still quite empty when we arrived there. Towards the end of November, we can already feel the Christmas festive with the Bergen airport decorations. There is a direct flight from Bergen to Tromso but it was a Fokker propeller plane, hence we decided to transit at Oslo to stick to SAS Airlines.
