We woke up on Saturday early (jet lag) and headed down to the breakfast buffet at the Rica. This was probably the best breakfast buffet I've ever experienced - we both got at least three plates each morning we ate there. There was lots of interesting items to choose from - including many that wouldn't necessarily find their way to an American breakfast table (meatballs, cookies, deli meats, etc.).
After a hearty 3 course breakfast, we headed out to explore Tromso. The snow was pretty deep from the last few days of snow.

After coming in from the cold, we were fed reindeer and lamb stew in a large tent with a central fire. A great way to end a night full of adventure.
