As you might have noticed the updates on the site over the last 10 days where non-existent as I’ve spent last week traveling through Norway… A few days in Hemsedal snowboarding and a few days 400km above the Artic Circle in TromsÃ¸ looking for the northern lights. I have always wanted to see the northern lights and TromsÃ¸ is one of the best places in the world for this, because it’s right in the middle of the Aurora belt, a belt that circles the globe where the probability of seeing the northern lights is the highest.
I’ve imagined many times how would the lights look, but to be honest nothing prepares you for the actual show. It’s very hard to describe how cool it all looks. It’s like someone has got dimmer switches for the entire sky, playing with the light, moving it from place to place, casting a green glow over everything. We saw the lights two nights in a row, but the last night, while in the middle of this forest the show was at its best. The whole sky was lit up, while the few clouds passing by (visible on the right side of the image) where lit up by the village lights below.
