It is my longtime wish to see aurora borealis and now the time to see it finally came. I will travel with my husband and we are very excited. I found a good deal with Norwegian from Milano and we want to stay at Ami Hotel. Looks nice from the reviews and the price is great compared to others . But I have a few questions before I book our flights and hotel.
We are thinking of going from 24.2. to 1.3. (flights are Thursdays up and Tuesdays back). Is this a good time to see the lights or would it be better to come earlier/later?
We are very independent and like to do things our way, but I think we will join at least one of the tours with Guide Gunnar (he seems great by your recommendations) and maybe something with dogs (I love dogs). So my question is - do we need to rent a car in Tromso to travel around and see things or would we be ok with public transportation? For example if we want to go out of the city, to a dark place to look for the lights. What do you think? Thank you
