From Northern Lights to Midnight Sun
Witness the rapture of the Northern Lights in the Arctic town of Tromsø, Norway. Take a night tour with professional aurora chaser and world class photographer Kjetil Skogli for the best chance of catching the magic. Over 300 km north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is Norway's northernmost city, and thus the perfect place to enjoy the Midnight Sun from May 18 to July 26. Winter, of course, offers a sharp reversal, as the sun sinks below the horizon on November 26 and doesn't return until January 15. Despite its remoteness (or perhaps because of it), Tromsø is a pretty happening city with a thriving year round cultural scene. The city has excellent museums and galleries, many good restaurants and, of course, a swinging nightlife.
