hi i would like to do a trip to Tromso in feb? does any body know what is the best way to get there from Ireland?? or can you recommend and airline?
SAS has 1 daily connection Dublin-Oslo/Gardermoen-Tromsø. Outbound flight from Dublin at 12:10 arriving Tromsø at 18:10. Return flight from Tromsø at 19:55, overnight at Oslo airport Gardermoen arriving Dublin next day at 11:20. Tickets from around 305€ round trip.
If you want to avoid the overnight in Oslo, you may use a combination of Lufthansa/SAS or BA/SAS/, tickets from around 465€ round trip.
Ryanair has cheap flights Dublin-Oslo, but it is not recommended to book your connecting flights as separate tickets, especially not in winter.
Other option is Norwegian Airlines with a connection in Oslo. But Dublin-Tromso only works on Sundays and the return is on Thursdays.
As they are predicting another very cold winter this year with more snow, I would try and go on a through ticket from Dublin e.g. with Norwegian or SAS. We went with Norwegian last year and they were absolutely fine.
thank you very much guys ill look into that. As ive never been before it is nice to get some good advise. Can any one recommend good accommodation either in or outside Tromso ? Mid range would be good? Thanks again.
I agree with Iverh and ponaire, through tickets would be the safest in Winter. I have been stuck both in Paris and Oslo due to winter weather conditions myself. But the early morning Ryan Air flights from Dublin to Rygge could be an option as they leave plenty of time for transfer to a later flight from Gardermoen to Tromsø. Just make sure you are covered by your travel insurance in case of delays and such.
