Tromsø with Northern Lights display


What does it feel like to see the Northern Lights?

"It is magical, simply magical. You think you must be dreaming, especially when you catch an outbreak from the start. It just comes from nowhere… and keeps moving and changing shape! It’s like someone is doing a huge watercolour painting, in real time, across the canvas of the dark black sky. This is nature’s own silent movie show, awe-inspiring, majestic and ethereal that leaves you feeling stunned, reminded once again of the incredible beauty of nature. And somewhat grateful that you’ve had the opportunity to see it".
