3.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Book a tour or venture out on your own to see the famed Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as Northern Lights. The Norwegian cities of Tromso and Kirkenes provide good locations to see this natural phenomenon. Rent a car and drive yourself, take an organized Aurora chasing tour, or travel via a Hurtigruten vessel--the coastal ferry service in Norway. The ferry service operates 13 ships year-round and offers full-service excursions. Try dog sledding, whale watching, or snowmobiling in your down time in the Arctic Circle. Keep in mind that catching the light show is never guaranteed. Dress appropriately for the cold weather.
