Oh, that's long. About 20 hours. The railway until Fauske at Bodø, then bus to Narvik and Tromsø.

As previous poster have said there is no direct-bus service between Trondheim and Tromso.

If travelling with ground-bound public transport the trip must be taken in three legs:

1. Train: Trondheim-Fauske (9 hours)

2. Bus: Fauske-Narvik (4.5 hours)

3. Bus: Narvik-Tromso (5 hours)

The shortest total travel time I could find was is around 20.5 hours (leaving Trondheim 11.35pm and arriving in Tromso 8pm the next day).

Plane tickets can be bought for £45-50 depending on the rate of exchange.

Just thought I'd mention a bit about distance. The drive from Trondheim to Tromso is 1155 km, or just about 20 miles longer than Worthing-John o' Groats.
