Easy for last minute hotel extensions / flights from Tromso?

Hi,

We are travelling to Tromso from 27th March? Our original schedule is to stay in Tromso for 4 nights, i.e. checking out on 31st March, and to stay 1 night in Oslo.

However, we are afriad that we may not be so lucky to catch the Northern Lights in that 4 nights, so we are trying to plan for 1 night contingency.

How easy is it to do the following:

1) extend hotel With for 1 extra night?

2) book a flight from Tromso to Oslo (same day departure) on 1st April?

3) book hotel in Oslo for 1 night (31st March) on 30th March?

We have a flight booked from Oslo to Berlin departing 1st Apr in the evening. Thus, the latest we can depart from Tromso to Oslo is morning of 1st Apr, assuming we can book same day flights.

Are flights from Tromso difficult to book please?

Thanks in advance!

1. If rooms available, very easy - if not, impossible.

2. Easy, but expensive. Flights for 1st April now are between 499-1269 NOK (economy), flights for today are between 1499-1919 NOK (economy). Book online on www.flysas.com or www.norwegian.com - there are 15 non-stop flights between Tromso and Oslo on the 1st.

3. Easy (but might be expensive), but selection might be limited. Maybe book a hotel with a 24h cancellation rule.

End March is high season - check availability already for flights and hotels - prices will give you some idea of how heavily booked they are. Ask directly to hotel for some indication of availability.

Both Norwegian and SAS will let you change your flight date for a fee plus the price difference between price paid and current price. The earlier you book/change the cheaper - there are no last minute deals.

Oh dear, you are all correct. I noticed the March 31st airfare went up slightly since I last checked a few weeks ago. Need to decide soon :(

Is Oslo worth a 2D/1N visit or should I put all my energy and resources on Northern Lights?

If you came for the Northen Lights and they are your priority, stay in Tromsø.

Thanks again for the replies; the hotel suggested us booking an extra night and cancel the day before if we don't need it. The air tic is half the price on 1st Apr compared to 31st Mar...
