It looks like a LONG journey to me just to visit a zoo. Sorry, I cant find any information on buses.

Also the Zoo is only open 11:00-15:00 on Sundays outside of summer time.

It's about 200 km, so some 3 hours or more by public transport.

Seems like regional bus 100 operated by Torghatten Trafikkselskap is an option, locals can give additional info

As far as I can find out, the distance from the main road is about 3 km.

I know off people who have arranged pick up from the bus drop-off by the Polar Zoo. I don't know if this is a regular service offered by them, but you could always send them an inquiry.

Thank you for all responses. Basically the buses don't go early enough on a Sunday and that effectively means that the trip cannot go ahead as between the buses and the zoos opening hours it's just not possible. A huge disappointment as my dream would be to see the wolves but I can't think of a way of doing it without it costing a huge amount of money which is just not possible.

Perhaps consider renting a car.

Some of my guests last week took the first bus in the morning, about 6 am on a week day, and get a pickup of the staff by the main road. Back in the city around 4.30 pm.

Long day, but they was happy after experience the wolf kiss...

The buses don't run the same time table on a sunday so we are now looking at car hire. Can you tell me of a car hire firm in down town Tromso that hire cars or one day - a Sunday? Hope you can help. Thanks
