I unfortunately was unable to travel to Tromsø but my friend Tom did: “A big thanks to Joachim and Torvald for being amazing hosts in their beautiful home. Came to Tromso looking for a restful place to stay during the Midnight Sun Marathon and was not disappointed. This was the perfect base. The apartment is in a pretty building in a quiet and scenic residential area of town, from where the town centre, harbour, and local attractions like the Polaria aquarium are all easily walkable (no more than 10 minutes, even quicker to the Main Street). There are restaurants, cafes and supermarkets just a short walk away, and the airport is easily reachable by public bus or taxi. The apartment’s position up a hill means there are great views of the surrounding fjords and mountains from the upper floor, especially from the balcony. Inside, there’s everything you could need. Two good-sized bedrooms, a large downstairs bathroom with a sauna and jacuzzi bath, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The lounge area upstairs is very spacious and comfortable. The hosts have prepared a helpful and informative written booklet explaining how to use facilities like the rubbish disposal, other practical info, and ideas for local sightseeing and dinner options. Perhaps most importantly: what amazing hosts! Joachim went above and beyond to be helpful on arrival – even meeting me at the airport and then offering a short tour of the town to point out local supermarkets and points of interest. Couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful, and responded quickly to a couple of questions that cropped up during our stay. This really was gold standard service from our hosts – thanks guys! Wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and to recommend to anyone looking for a lovely base in Tromso.”
