How to get to the meeting location and pick-up point at Scandic Ishavshotel
So, you made it to Tromsø, but do not know exactly where the pick-up point is?! No problem. We got you covered.
If you have arrived by plane
There are three ways of getting to the city center where the Scandic Ishavshotel is:
By Flyplass Express (a shuttle bus from the Airport to the city center), which has a set schedule that you can find here. The tickets cost around 180 kr per person (for an adult; for children it is 115 kr) and you can book them here or pay directly at the bus stop. The ride takes you directly to the Scandic Ishavshotel and is around 15 minutes long.
This is straight forward. Go to one of the taxis that are outside the airport (or can be found on and around the island of Tromsø) and just give the taxi drive the address (Fredrik Langes gate 2, 9008 Tromsø) or the name of the Hotel, which is Scandic Ishavshotel.
By the normal bus.
Yes, there are normal bus lines that go from the airport to the city center. That cost less (ca.80 kr) but take more time to get to the centre. Also, they have some capacity for luggage storage but cannot guarantee that all your luggage can be stored, due to other travelers on the bus. These buses can also return you to the airport. You should get off the bus at Fredrik Langes gate bus station. The best buses to take go in the following directions:
42 towards Stakkevollan via sentrum
40 towards Tromsø museum via sentrum (go off Wi-To, that is another stop at the center)
24 towards Mortensnes via Giæverbukta (also get off at Wi-To)
