Two days in Tromso to get accustomed to the midnight sun, then 3 days in Longyearbyen, the most northerly permanently inhabited place in the world.
They say midnight sun but we have yet to actually see the sun. It is light all “night”, very light but the hills around are permanently swathed in low cloud. Today, our last day, we are forecast for some sun. We’re sailing north to Pyramiden, an abandoned Russian mining village, which will look even more dramatic if the sun appears.
