This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Mobility Scooter
A practical city which because of climate has most things indoors. Perfect place to see northern Lights
Transport & Parking
We arrived by cruise ship then shuttle bus into town. Lowered pavements and very accessible. All shops in two indoor markets with adjacent multi storey car park.
We were here in March so snow everywhere but we managed to find a way through. Malls were very accessible within. The main Market Street had been left uncleared as this was the end point for the 1200km husky run. A great spectacle and good view from side of street.
Toilets in the malls were of generous proportions with all required rails. Loos in Norway tend not to have emergency cords.
Everyone we met was very helpful and willing to try to understand my English
Anything else you wish to tell us?
An amazing place in winter when the snow is on the ground and there is a chance for the northern lights.
