Get enchanted - Northern Lights
Seeing the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is a jaw-dropping and mystical moment. When conditions are favourable you can experience the spectacular magic and beauty of the Northern Lights which dance across the sky. The aurora can be viewed best in the winter and during early evening and night, in northern Sweden, Norway and Finland. Why not combine them with a city break in Tromsø?
