Tromso - Cash budget for trip


My husband and I are off to Tromso next Friday for a week.

We are staying in a hotel on a B&B basis and have booked and paid for our tours/activities up front.

I'm trying to figure out how much cash to take with us for things such as lunch/dinner and souvenirs etc.

I know Norway is expensive compared to the UK and I'm prepared for that but I'm struggling to find out prices for eating out etc so I can gauge how much we'll need roughly per day.

Anyone with any knowledge/experience please help?

Bus fare on a local bus is about the only thing you need to pay for in cash. Everything else can be paid by card.

As for restaurant prices, see previous topic and visit restaurant web sites - many have a menu with prices on their site.

Budget for double UK prices for eating out in Norway, and the same for alcohol.

You should already have found that accommodation prices in Norway are quite reasonable and about the same as the UK for the same standard.
