No one can deny the fact that Norway is rich in natural sceneries, but many travel to this country to personally lay their eyes on the northern lights.

Northern Lights in Norway

 

 

Norway is famous for its exceptional countryside sceneries featuring mountain ranges and fjords, but one of the main reasons that make it at the top of every traveler’s must-visit list is it is in here where the best view of both the midnight sun and the northern lights can be witnessed.
 
The northern lights, also called an aurora, can be seen as a natural display of beautiful lights in the sky, and they are generally seen in the Antarctic and Arctic regions or in countries nestled in high altitudes. 
 
This is why Geoff Wilding of the Daily Mail UK signed up for a cruise to Norway in the hope of witnessing this natural phenomenon in Tromsø (“Reader Review: Enjoy a Norwegian Voyage that will Leave You Glowing”). His wonderful experience started when he saw the “clouds parted” and “saw an extraordinary display” of lights in the sky.
 
Here’s a quick excerpt from his very interesting article:
 
We travelled from Alta to the hinterland of Finmark to see the Ice Hotel which is built new every year. But the best thing was actually seeing the Northern Lights. You leave the ship in Tromsø in the early evening and are driven into the wilderness, away from any town lights which would interfere with seeing the aurora borealis.
 
Check out the rest of his article, and see what other beautiful places and wonderful experiences he encountered in his Norway cruise.
