Jan 2023 trip for 6 days in Norway

Any suggestions for winter travel ? We fly into Oslo and would like to take a Fjord cruise (may be a crazy idea!) We also would like to get up toward Tromso and see Northern lights if possible. We re thinking of renting a car or taking trains up and back. First time visit, any and all suggestions are welcome. We love beautiful views and sites!
Thanks !!

Dress warm. It's one of those places where the tourist season ends around September.

Fjord cruise in January sounds hard to find, the tourist boats are summer only. There are regular boats on the larger fjords, but those are for crossing the fjords and rarely run along the fjords. And there is always the weather that might make it a very bumpy and not very scenic trip. Though there is always Hurtigruten that runs along the coast all year round.

Tromsø certainly has it's charm, but it is not a great place to see Northern lights. For beautiful views Norway in general is a good place.
