I ask because, thanks to the advent of LCC in the Norwegian market, I can finally afford to go there - and, best of all, Norwegian Air Shuttle is doing flights from Tromso to Longyearbyen (Spitzbergen) for EUR100.00 roundtrip - it used to be at least 300 on BU (still is). FABE-ulous. So I have booked a very quick add-on to my trip, going to LYR for about 5 hours (arrive 2245, depart 0400) - it is the last week of August (and the last week of the Midnight Sun up there), so I was wondering - what is there to do in LYR on a LOOONNGG summer evening ? I know its a very small place, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to arrive and find everything closed, leaving me for 5 hours outside in the perishing cold, but at least I will have seen the Midnight sun, AND flown to the northernmost scheduled destination (78 degrees N) - cccoooollllll !
So does anybody have any suggestions ?
