The Tromso Northern Lights break was a great trip although we weren't lucky enough to see the lights themselves on this occasion! The guide tried his best as we were out for over 8 hours and even went into Finland but the weather was just too overcast. I knew it was not guaranteed before going so I'll have to do another trip to see them. The hotel in Tromso was good and centrally located with nice staff. We added a two night stay in Oslo on the way home which again was excellent. The hotel was central and good and the Oslo pass was a great addition as it gave access to lots of attractions and transport. All together a great trip.

An excellent experience in so many ways.

Well what can we say?? Words can't do this holiday justice but we will give it a go ! We were recommended to take this trip by two lovely ladies at the travel show in Manchester two years ago and now we know why they raved about it. We have travelled a lot with Inntravel and independently but this trip was one of the best for a unique experience, from the amazing ferry ride from Bødo to Svolvær which was the best ferry ever, the scenery was jaw dropping and we couldn't believe that scenery like this existed it was like stepping into a Jurassic landscape, with mountains and clifftops everywhere !

The Lofoten islands certainly surpassed our expectations there was a WOW moment around every corner, the walks were spectacular and the views awesome, the weather even behaved itself for us apart from one day but then it turned the waterfalls into raging torrents which were spectacular! If this wasn't enough the extension in Oslo was amazing the walking tour you provided made sure we saw all the main sites and walked nearly 15 miles in the glorious sunshine. Once again you have provided us with many more fantastic memories and we look forward to the next trip you send us on.

The stopover in Bodo was very enjoyable as we were there for the first day of the Nordland Music Festival. The ferry crossing on a bright, calm evening was spectacular, with the approach to the Lofoten Islands and little ports along the way. The walk from Svolvaer to Tjeldbergtinden was superb, great weather, and fabulous views, with a picnic at the top. The Viking Museum was a fascinating stop off on the way to Mortsund, as was a visit to the glassblower at Vikten and the cafe across the road.  The Tjorndaelen circuit was also a highlight, masses of wild flowers, birdlife and not a soul on the whole route!

Our three nights in Oslo were a great contrast to the Lofoten Islands, and were filled with cultural highlights including the Vigeland Park, National Gallery, Munch Gallery and Viking Museum. The Oslo pass was exhausted, as were we. Good restaurants too, although pricey.

We were fortunate to see the amazing Northern Lights on all three evenings in Tromsø thanks to the clear, calm weather. From talking to others, this was quite unusual. The word 'awesome' is overused but was the only suitable adjective to describe seeing the Aurora. A half-hour walk up the hill and out of the city was repaid with the best view, due to less interference from light pollution. This also enabled us to experience a city covered in a thick blanket of snow where life continues to function smoothly – such a contrast to England!

We went this far north hoping to see the Northern Lights and lots of snow and our expectations were more than met. We will definitely return.

One tip – snow grips were essential on the snow and packed ice which was found on most pavements and paths.

Oslo provided a complete contrast but actually felt colder due to the cloudy, snowy weather. The Oslo Pass is good value and there is more than enough to do to justify a three-night break.
