Northern Norway: It is possible to get to far northern Norway via rental
car, train from Sweden to
Narvik, and Hurtigrute Coastal
Steamship Services to/from Bergen and other Norwegian North Sea ports.
However, distance, remoteness, and weather concerns make flying to/from
Tromsø Airport from locations further south in
SWEDEN the most practical means of
travelling back and forth across the Arctic Circle.
Driving above the Arctic Circle
requires vigilance for new hazards:
migrating herds of reindeer, and huge,
OBSTINATE moose blocking the roadway,
PLUS snow and ice even in July and August.
