Hi Dee,

How exciting, not long now! Smile

Sure, we would recommend you take ice grips for your shoes and warm woollen or fleece under garments with you, to stay nice and warm!

An insulated body suit, boots, gloves and headwear, including a lamp, will be provided for you.

I hope this helps.

Many thanks,
Vickie

Hi there Vickie.  I am also going to Tromso in March.  I am a total rookie with any cold weather destinations.  What would you advise for wearing around the city.  I mostly walk in wellies in wet and muddy Devon.  Do I need walking boots for this trip?  Should I bring a walking pole?
Also, how many people are booked on the trip.
Thanks.

Hi again Vickie

Sorry, more questions about March trip to Norway.
How many people are on the trip and where are they flying from?
Not many meals are included, Do you have any advice as to how much spending money is required for food and drink?
Do I need to buy walking boots for this trip?
Thank you.
Apologies if these questions have appeared in a different form somewhere else, I am finding the system a bit confusing to use.

Hi Suzanne,

Apologies for the delay.

So there are 16 people booked on this trip, 6 men and 10 women. Their ages range from mid 50s to early 70s.

People are either flying from Luton or Gatwick.

Regarding spending money and boots, we asked your Tour Manager, Linda Fleet for her advice, and she said:

I would suggest boots that have a good grip and that are warm. These do not have to be actual walking boots, as long as they are comfortable and you can use thick socks inside them for warmth. Crampons are usually a good bet over the boots but not compulsory. These can be purchased in UK or in Tromso if required. Approx. £15 in Tromso depending on where they are purchased.

A coffee or tea is approx. £5, a light lunch, soup & bread will cost approx., £10 and an evening meal between £20-£35 depending on where you eat. Most restaurants & cafes offer water at no charge.

I hope that helps!

Many thanks,
Vickie
