Tromso - The best place to see the Northern Lights:
The Arctic city of Tromso, known as "the Paris of the North", is ideally located in the middle of the Aurora/Northern Lights zone.
The Northern Lights; nature's own light show, are solar winds that meet the atmosphere in a zone around the magnetic North Pole, forming arches, waves and curls of light moving across the sky, with sudden rays of light shooting down from space.

The Northern Lights activity takes place all year in all types of weather. However, to actually see the lights, the weather has to be dark and clear (no guarantee!). In Tromsø it is dark between August and April, with the main Northern Lights season from November to April. The Northern Lights are visible from the afternoon until the middle of the night.


Ideally I think you would need to be looking at 3-4 nights, excursions available as well as Northern Lights tours our snow shoeing, Cross country skiing, dog sledge safari ect


Look forward to hearing from you all!

    Fab trip with lovely people. Dilip was the perfect host, always ensuring that everyone was catered for. Also, not afraid to admit when things did not go so well e.g. the "Sami camp" experience on Saturday night.

    Not sure my photos add much to the stunning selection on the Group pages but you can view them on Google+ if you like (apologies in advance for the under-dressed old man in a bath):

    Yakeem and I brought back the worst, ever Norwegian "cake" for our work colleagues. I've been made to promise not to bring them any more holiday snacks!

    I've talked to a couple of people who went on this trip previous years, and I know we need to book Northern Light guide locally. Does the host (guessing Dillip :) has the information of the guides/tours, passed on from previous hosts? Or shall I ask my friends to give me the details?

    November 6, 2012

    • Nena

      Hi Yoko, yes Dilip has all the information but the Northern Lights tour has already been reserved in advance for the Saturday night with the same company used last year. Meeeting arrangements for the 23rd to be sent out this weekend with costs and details of other tours too. thanks Nena:-)

    Hi Nena, Can't wait for this, when do you need the balance of hol/flights etc payment ? Also do we meet you at Heathrow ? and how do we get to the Hotel ? Can we share costs of travelling for this.

    October 10, 2012

    • Nena

      Sorry typo.. A further email will be sent out 2 weeks before trip to advise of meeting arrangements at the airport plus contact details of host. Getting to the hotel at the other end will be co- ordinated by the host and also all additional details. Hope this helps:-) Nena

      Thats great, thanks. Not sure if anyone is aware, but there is a bus from Woking station that travels to all Heathrow terminals, which is about £10 each way.

    Hi Elaine...You would need warm clothing..if you have ski jacket, trousers, boots etc would be good as it usually snows at the time of the year.
