In a world full of endless possibilities, aren’t the natural phenomena of the northern lights truly amazing? ? This light, which appears in the cold, dark northern sky (countries around the Arctic Circle, Norway, Sweden, and parts of Iceland) illuminates the sky with different colors, from soft pastels to shades of green, pink, and purple. Sometimes they move slowly like clouds, sometimes in streaks. It reminds us to never lose the wonder, hope, fear and wonder of life! Read this blog, “The Best Places to See the Northern Lights – Tromso” to learn more about the northern lights – what they are like.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the amazing, beautiful lights we visit. The best way to introduce lights is to go through the controls. There are a variety of options – from bus groups to private tours, cruises, and ferries. Each has its advantages, guests can choose the best according to their needs.

It is difficult to see the northern lights, because sometimes they are difficult to find, which requires good weather. So having a professional guide to accompany you is a must. They have the ability to predict where and when they will get electricity and they know how to check the weather. In addition, making the trip interactive with the stories of their experiences; I always hope and make sure to see the lights.
Often, you have to travel far from the city to get a good view. This is why it is called the northern lights ‘chasing’. You have to chase wild geese in search of bright, cloudless areas, and wait until it gets dark to catch those dancing lights. It’s really amazing, when the beautiful lights move and rotate, creating a changing screen of light. This together with the stars looks like you are being watched by creatures from another world.
Here are some helpful tips to make your stay more comfortable and convenient:
Usually, tours start in the evening, after sunset, and last up to 6 to 7 hours. The length of the tour depends on how long you want to stay. But, being awake is what you need to be prepared for!!
You have to brave the freezing cold to see something as cool as this! The sub-zero temperature outside requires you to be well covered in warm and winter clothing. Most tours provide thermals and snowshoes if that’s not enough and offer hot drinks, such as, soup, hot chocolate, and snacks to guests. There’s no better way to stay cozy outside in the cold than by having a fire, which is ideally set up by the guides.
