This Week in Travel from TLFL

Jun 23, 2023

This week I have been in the Arctic Circle to celebrate Finnair’s new route to Bodø in Norway. It’s a great time to visit Norway as the NOK is very weak against the British pound meaning prices for many things are less than the UK. Hotels outside of Oslo are also great value.

I then took a train journey down to Trondheim that cost just £45 in first class and was absolutely breathtaking. I took hundreds of photos of the snowcapped mountains, waterfalls, lakes and fjords that we passed.

Trondheim is a larger city than Bodo with no less than three Michelin star restaurants and a beautiful Grand Dame of a hotel – the 5* Britannia.  Finnair are increasing their frequency to Trondheim this summer so I flew back to London via Helsinki with Finnair.
