My partner has always wanted to see the northern lights and this year for Christmas I was thinking of booking our own trip travelling from Lonodn UK in early March 2014 ( 5th March) for 4 days. I know its not an exact science but is this generally a good time to go for the northern lights on terms of chances to see it? Can anyone recommend a good trip to do perhaps while we are there and is 4 days enough?
Not sure yet what else there is to see or do in Tromso.. or how expensive it is.. although I hear it is hidiously expensive and we will be on a relatively tight budget! We have winter jackets etc from our skiing trips but would this be enough to keep warm, or do we need to buy more specialist gear? Anyway advice, tips recommendations welcome, thanks
