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!
