Olivier told Theresa and Maeghan that we booked a flight to Tromsø, but it wasn’t until the day the day we flew out that Maeghan realized how far north we were actually going.
So far.… we are ABOVE Iceland! and IN the ARCTIC CIRCLE! And that POLAR BEARS, REINDEER, WHALES and other arctic animals call this place home!
Arriving into Tromsø is a treat because as we were landing, the clouds made a layer around the mountains and totally reminded Maeghan of home ❤️. But once we got through the clouds, the rain had set in and the adventures truly began. Our goal was to go hiking and search for some of the wildlife around and we were totally in luck!
Here are our adventures from above the arctic circle!
Maeghan was so bummed that we didn’t see Reindeer on the island hike and no sooner did we reach the bottom… we found a small family of THREE WILD REINDEER!
The baby one was chilling in the shade (Norway is having record breaking heat waves — and yes, we also went for a swim in the arctic water!) and we go to walk pretty close and say hi 😊
Last day in Tromsø and we finally figured out the plan for the rest of the Norway trip! We have boat rides, glacier hikes and vikings in our future. 😉
