[breakfast, lunch] Day 4: Add in an extra optional tour or explore more of Tromso. You could visit Polaria (an aquarium and exhibit on life in the Arctic), the Arctic Cathedral or The Planetarium. Why not take the cable car up Mount Storsteinen above the city to take in the spectacular views. You have the evening at leisure or you may like to add another Northern Lights tour (book locally).
