Do women go out alone

hi,

I'm visiting Tromso at the end of November (cannot wait!). I'm staying 3 nights and currently have trips booked for 2 of the nights. However, I doing this trip by myself and if I dont book a trip for the remaining night, and pluck up courage to go to a restaurant or bar alone would it look odd or draw attention? I can see that Tromso is a popular tourist destination but not sure if its the norm to see women out alone.

Many thanks.

I do not know about Tromso, but in other places I have been to I have never had a problem going to a restaurant alone in Norway. In Norway there are single travelers both for tourism and business, hence seing a women alone is not odd. If you are going to a bar alone, someone will probably start talking to you.

I come from Tromsoe, it is quite normal hehe :)

Business travellers go out alone all the time, and locals aswell.

Hi.

The nighlife in Tromsø is amazing, and be sure, you are not alone who going out by your self..;) And probably, before you have test your first drink you will have many friends already...

Depence on your age, but try pubs like; Solid, Circa, Meieriet, Günther, Arthur and Skarven.

Good luck, and welcome to the Arctic Norway.

Kind regards, Gunnar Hildonen.

Hi.

Age is easy, but type..?

Try the pub Skarven, if you are there Friday from 2 pm, it`s After Work Beer, and a lot of people in all ages.

Try also, Rorbua, at the SAS hotel, where they have live music. Cover charge NOK 40... at least last time I was there.

Ølhallen - The brewery, Mack, beer hall - open 9 am to 5 pm, if you like beer. Try the Christmas beer and Autumn beer (Høst øl).

SAS have a nice lobby bar.

Solid is a nice place to relax.

What else..?

Kind regards, Gunnar Hildonen.
