Come to Tromso in November?

Hello. I was planning a three day trip to Tromso end of November, thinking it would be an adventurous, interesting trip to experience life in darkness 24/7. However, I just read in this Forum that there usually isn't snow until Dec. I was going to travel with my 3 children (ages 14, 11,8). Would there be things to do? Thanks.

The polar night is an interesting experience - however, it isn't completely dark 24/7 in Tromsø. The sun doesn't rise above the horizon, but there are still some hours of soft bluish light in the middle of the day - and it gets quite light on clear days. It might snow in December - but it might well not. Impossible to predict, really. ;o) It snowed a couple of days ago - but the snow is gone again now...

February and March are generally the best months to come to Tromsø, snow-wise. There will most likely be snow in the mountains surrounding town though, also in December.

For info about things to do etc, see www.destinasjontromso.no

I have a Tromsø page on Virtual Tourist; travel tips & photos, feel free to take a look: members.virtualtourist.com/m/878cd/33699/
