This was a customized trip to the Arctic. I specified as my 2 primary parameters that we get as far north of the Arctic Circle as possible without being scientists or in the military, and that we spend at least 3 full days in Tromso attending as many concerts as possible at Nordlysfestivalen, the North Lights Festival of international music. Our trip planner did an admirable job fulfilling both of those criteria. The trip was well planned, with the northerly part being a 3+ day stay in Longyearbyen on Svalbard, providing the outdoor and physical excitement of the trip, and obligatory time in Tromso, with too-short time in Oslo and Stockholm.
The most memorable part of our time in Svalbard was our 7-hour dogsledding adventure! This was a significant physical challenge and I would caution anyone considering this to ensure that you are in good physical condition; this is not simply get on the sled and let the doggies pull you!
The time we spent in the 3 cities was terrific. We enjoyed all the concerts we were able to attend in Tromso. I particularly fell in love with Stockholm, a beautiful city.
Lengthen it! Too little time in Oslo in particular.
