My to-do list 📃 for today was quickly thrown overboard because, after all, tomorrow is another day. Instead, we preferred to take advantage of the 🌤 beautiful weather and take a short 🥾🥾 hike through the Duvenstedter Brook.

We take a short tour through Tromsø.

The best place to see Tromsø from above:
The mountain railway 🚠 starts at Solliveien in Tromsdalen and takes four minutes up to Storsteinen, 421 meters above sea level. We have fantastic views of the city.
I am including some photos that I took during the bus ride to the valley station in the tour. So… read more
