How to go from Narvik to Tromso during Easter weekend?

Hello,

We are trying to get to Tromso from Narvik on 3/30 Sat but we're running out of options. Here's our itinerary:

3/25 Kiruna

3/26 train to Abisko

3/27 Abisko

3/28 Abisko

3/29 Abisko

3/30 train to Kiruna -->train to Narvik for the scenic ride --> from Narvik to Tromso

3/31 Tromso

4/1 Tromso

4/2 Fly to Bergen

What we found so far:

Bus - closed Fri-Sun

Rental car office: closed Fri-Sun

Flight - Wideroe EVE-TOS at 11am, but our train from Kiruna won't arrive at Narvik till 3:30pm

Are there hired cars or long distance taxis? We'd appreciate any ideas and suggestions. Most of our itinerary is booked so it would be hard to do major revisions.

Thank you in advance!

The bus from Narvik to Tromsø runs normally both Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of March.

Saturday on Saturday schedule, 1 departure at 1552. Sunday on Sunday schedule, 3 departures. Time table: tromskortet.no/getfile.php/…100.pdf

From Abisko you should take the train directly to Narvik, there is no reason to go back to Kiruna.

Oh dear what a mess. Are you 100% sure you cannot get hold of a rental car ? They often deliver outside office hours for a fee. Narvik airport would be the best option for a pick-up - please note you need to look at Narvik airport (NVK) not Evenes (EVE). Evenes is at quite some distance and I suppose there would not be any transport to get there from Narvik.

Contact the rental companies directly by phone (Europcar or Hertz) and see if there is any solution to your dilemma.

There are of course taxis, but the cost would the price of a small house ;) How many persons are you ?

If this does not work, please come back on the forum for more suggestions.
