Feel free to find you´re way.
No lounge used here today

The classic for me, maybe?

It´s a joke isn´t it?. I spend my time in Oslo out at the gate with no one else around to follow the movements. Walked back to the  main terminal to see whats going on by the screen, only to notice that my gate is now exactly the one where I´ve been all the time before, 19E

Nothing to worry, snow is standard procedure here

Norwegian means a red fuselage, at least usually!

This is LN-KKW, no individual name to notice, a 737-800 is on schedule,
not the classic 737-300 like it is.
Leg no. 57 on type, new to the log.
Call it an oldie, in the air since 07.12.1989 with Air Atlantis, TAP, Euro Atlantic Airways, BRA Transportes Aereos and finally Norwegian.
There are 9 planes on type still in the fleet and this is the oldest example.
Two stories are here:

6.00 pm with a weather related 15 minutes delay we leave the "Oslo Lufthavn" from the 2950 meters "One-Nine-Left". Snow, 2 negative degrees and 1.45 hours to fly.
OLCI works well 24 hours prior to departure but there is no seat change possible without extra payment. The fare is 90.00 Euro´s, booked directly via the companies website.
And yes, this is a Norwegian themed cabin.
The load is very close to 100%.
24C for me, the second to last row. The window is taken and the middle seat is open.
A very special announcement is to hear. There is one pax to much        aboard. Please check the BP and press the button if there is something wrong

Dark blue grey leather seats and low legroom with the classic retro buttons

Cabin crew is one middle aged nice male and two women, one middle aged, long brown hair, nice
and one younger, large slim black ponytail, nice.
Service is BOB.
Riding through the night

Till Tromso.
Cockpit crew is from Norway with the "Kaptein" to hear and a nice, detailed welcome during boarding. The pax divergence sorted and an delay apologize. He is once again to hear short prior to approach.
No route or flightlevel info

Touchdown at "Tromsø lufthavn, Langnes" and the 2447 meters runway "Zero-One". 2 negative degrees at 08.00 pm, 20 minutes late. Always these under-the-wing shots, you know!

No snow here on the apron, but fresh, ahem cold it is surrounded by a gusty blowing wind

 photo NORWAY032014084_zps12d09bba.jpg
This way, please!

Bye now to Norwegian.
Flybussen moves me through the nightly streets and tunnels for the city center.
Where I should have to walk a couple of meters for my accomodation, the Smarthotel Tromso

 photo NORWAY032014088_zps24bbf13c.jpg
This is at least for Norwegian standards not that expensive, but it  is also an masterpiece from these "you do not get lost here" properties
 photo NORWAY032014089_zps12b2e851.jpg
 photo NORWAY032014090_zpse1679e12.jpg
Sure, I like these nightly city views much more southern side with a warm wind. But hey, I should go now also when it´s cold, really cold

 photo NORWAY032014092_zpsec726608.jpg
Looks like nice, isn´t it?
 photo NORWAY032014093_zps575568a0.jpg
 photo NORWAY032014094_zps4cbba78b.jpg
And especially with these monument up the hill

 photo NORWAY032014096_zpsc2c6cddc.jpg
Ok, ok, I like it this way

Party time here tonight?

The modern style Bibliotek not far from the hotel

Ice sculptures, no, it´s not cold here, certainly not!

The church and a hopefully well heated hotel

Ok, time to take a nap right now, one of these short examples!.

Here are the conclusions:
1.)Cimber Air STR-CPH: The calm service to start the trip.
2.)SAS CPH-OSL: Short and quiet up for Norway.
3.)Norwegian OSL-TOS: A sleepy
evening Norwegian style.

How far up the north should I go?:

Are the flights ok, also during this time of the year?:

 photo NORWAY032014177_zpsa6fa0d03.jpg

Is there maybe also some sun to see above snow covered mountains?:

And most important, great thanx to Trond, the right place at the right time, there is really a light to see.
And believe me it is not cold, no way, when you spend you´re evening at more than 20 negative degrees on a mountain top, thanx to Trond again, with a Sami tent to warm up from time to time:
