Tromsø – one of the world’s best places to see the Northern Lights

Tromsø is perfect for chasing the fascinating natural phenomenon. In part, that is because the Arctic city is in the middle of the Aurora Borealis oval that surrounds the Earth. It is also slightly warmer than other Arctic cities. The months of October into March are the best times for spotting the lights in Norway. Tromsø’s ideal location increases the odds of a Northern Lights display even during periods of low Aurora Borealis activity.
