Vacationing in this popular region is about discovering new things, so set aside some time to hit the road and explore a couple of the other cool population centers dotted around Meloyvaer. Harstad, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the north, and Andenes, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the southeast of Meloyvaer are also well worth checking out.
Houses of faith are often the perfect portals into a community's big beating heart. The cathedrals around Meloyvaer are certainly no exception. Enjoy a little culture, learning and lore with a little sunshine and fresh air at the region's gardens and open-air museums.
When the weather is fine, head to the region's beautiful waterways for a morning of canoeing or rafting. Troms offers some excellent ways to experience its unique landscapes. Thrill seekers can join one of the many hiking and mountain climbing experiences on offer here.
In many cases, the difference between being a savvy traveler and a mere tourist is a little appreciation of the local language, so be sure to know a number of simple Norwegian words and phrases before you arrive. An example of such a phrase is "Kvar kjem du frå?" (Where are you from?). "Kva heiter du?" translates to "What's your name?"
At the end of your adventure in Meloyvaer, spend the last of your Norwegian kroner on last minute keepsakes for the folks at home and bid a fond Ha det bra (farewell).
