After a long discussion we have finally made a list of our favourite Norwegian candy. Some of them are more traditional and some are rather new inventions. All of these can be bought at the local grocery store.
Salted corn kernels covered in chocolate. In our opinion it is a perfect combination of sweet and salty. If you ask the younger generation some of them will refer to themselves as “Smash-addicts”. It is also said that it is impossible to only eat one.
This is one of the most traditional Norwegian pastries. There are many different types of Lefse, some are sweet and some are not. The one pictured below is soft and made with wheat flour, in between the layers there is butter, sugar and cinnamon. In Lise’s opinion the square ones, called “Klenning”, is the best. Of course, if you have the luxury of buying them fresh from the local bakery – do so.
We’re very proud of our milk chocolate here in Norway, and we feel that you just have to taste it. Freias slogan is “A little piece
of Norway” and it is quite suitable. The 200 gram chocolate plate comes in endless variations, just visit the store an check it out.
Thick potato slices with peel, super crispy and extremely tasty. All of us here at the reception love it, and we’re pretty sure you’ll love it too!
This is the Norwegian outdoor chocolate, we always take it with us when we’re out hiking. We have had it since 1937 and are extremely proud of it. It is four crispy biscuit bars covered in chocolate. It might look similar to KitKat, but we promise you it is so much better!
In July of 2015, we opened a brand new site for caravans and motorhomes as a great improvement from our previous camp site.
We have 54 places, each with a leveled asphalt place for the caravan/motorhome, electricity close to the place and a pitch of artificial grass right outside the door of your vehicle. The area has coverage of free Wi-Fi, and brand new service buildings with showers, toilets, kitchen and sauna nearby.
Please note that we use CEE 17-sockets, and not Schuko. If you only have a Schuko-plug available, it is possible to buy or borrow an adapter from the reception.
During the summer season, there is very high demand on our camp site, and we often run out of places some time during the day. If you know which date you will be in Tromsø and want to rent a place, we highly recommend that you contact us beforehand to make sure you get a place. If you want to book for the same day, you could give us a call, and we’ll reserve a place for you.
Taxi Ask our front desk staff – They will of course help you to book a taxi from the camping to the airport. Are you going to hit one of the morning flights, we recommend you to book a taxi one day in advance. Normal price to and from the airport is NOK 250-NOK 350.
Alternatively, you could use the city buses to get to and from the airport.
From the airport, take bus 24 all the way to the bus stop called “Båthavna” across the Tromsø bridge. This trip takes about 45 minutes. From the bus stop “Båthavna” it’s a 10mins walk up the valley along the river to get to the camping.
Bus tickets could be bought either by cash on the bus (approx. 50NOK), at the kiosk at the airport or by an app called Troms Mobillett (Approx. NOK35). If you’re planning on using the bus more during your stay, there are also weekly and daily tickets available for sale.
