Snow in Tromso is a trilingual travel and lifestyle blog with a focus on Northern Europe.

It was founded by Vanessa Brune (BA Northern Studies / MPhil Indigenous Studies) and is dedicated to travellers and future expats, giving insight into life in Scandinavia and presenting unique and unforgettable travel destinations and activities throughout Northern Europe and the Arctic - occasionally also in German and Norwegian

As a guidebook author, tour guide and co-founder of the Scandinavia & Nordics Travel Community, I am genuinely interested in helping travellers to get the most out of their precious time up north and want people to have experiences off the beaten track, in order to really get to know the Nordic culture and way of life.
