Discover the natural phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis

Tromsoe northern lights

Northern Norway and Tromsø are known for their amazing northern lights. This natural phenomenon, also known as the Aurora Borealis, lights up the winter skies like a living painting. The colorful streams are the result of energy particles from the sun colliding with the earth’s atmosphere from 80-500 kilometers above us. The gasses from earth then create light when coming into contact with the sun’s particles, and give off the beautiful sky show that has attracted visitors from across the globe. The display itself is difficult to describe. Each show is different with greens, pinks and even reds.

But this explanation really doesn't do it justice. You truly have to see it for yourself!
