I wish you all the very best for 2019!
We celebrated New Year in Tromsø this year. The weather was good, so we decided to walk up towards Fløya again to watch the mountain fireworks and the view over Tromsø. It is a great place to watch the official fireworks and we have done this several times in the last 15 years. This year, however, it was really discovered by the masses, which made the walk up and down less enjoyable than previous years, as it was basically a queue all the way up and down and not everyone is equally considerate. It was our own fault as well though: normally we take a different and less known route up, but this year we were running late and had to take the direct route to get there in time. But once up above the top station of the cablecar, there is a lot of space, people spread out and it was no problem to find a good location. As always, the fireworks were excellent and this was a great place to watch it. Below a small selection of the photos I took.
