We stopped in here and the person there was somewhat helpful. She gave us a map and helped us plan our day. She told us about construction of teh tunnels and offered excursions.

We came in late Saturday and had Sunday as our day of activities. We really needed to get some info from the T1 but they were closed all day Sunday. On Monday we went by and got our info but too late as we had to leave Monday morning.

Had to use these guys a few times and they were the best. One of the girls at the desk told me about the hike to flatbreen which I would not have found on my own and it was unforgettable.
