Nr. 1 will be – Use special grips to walk on slippery road. I have bought some extra grips for my guests so no worry about that. Nr. 2 Wear thermal underwear – it is not expensive piece of clothing but very useful. Nr. 3 Move and you will feel warm, instead of freezing and standing still. 4. Also good boots is a must to feel OK here. Fancy looking boots do not mean to be suitable for winter / wet weather.
Despite the high latitude in Tromsø island the climate is quite “mild” with moderate temperatures both in winter and summer. The temperature is usually around -3˚C to +3˚C in winter (until the May). Which means that wet and cold weather, slippery roads and freezing rain / wet snow is possible.
You should bring along: good winter jacket, woolen sweater, scarf, gloves, hat, warm long thermal underwear, warm thermal socks and good boots. Check the weather forecast to see if you need waterproof clothing.
