Photography Friday: N is for ‘Norway and Northern Lights’
Lighting up the night sky in typical Norwegian fashion – not with fireworks, but with the stunning Aurora Borealis.
Photographing the Northern Lights is never easy, but as I detailed in one of my past posts called ‘Chasing the Northern Lights’ – it is possible! Today’s Photography Friday takes us away from the summer weather that many of us are experiencing, to a cute little town in Northern Norway called Tromso. This was my base for checking out the Northern Lights.

wow these are incredible!
Thanks! Helped doing a Northern Lights photography course the first night!
Wow, when did you go? We were there for Xmas in 2013, did the entire Hurtigruten experience from Bergen to Kirkenes (via Tromso) and back, saw the Lights too which were so beautiful.
Thanks! I went in Feb 2013 – tried to plan for the best time around the moon etc ended up going during snowstorms, wrote a full post about it here https://kiwifootprints.com/2013/04/02/chasing-the-northern-lights/ Just flew into Tromso, wanted to do the Hurtigruten but it was just too expensive. Bet that was amazing though?!
Keep an eye out – we went 2 for 1 on Xmas day – xmas dinner was lobster 🙂
Oh wicked! Bet that was awesome way to celebrate Christmas!
Simply awe inspiring!
Thanks! They were amazing to see in real life too! Tromso was a lovely little town too, highly recommend it for a northern lights base
Absolutely gorgeous photos! I’ve actually been thinking of heading up to Tromso next year in an attempt to see the lights. How many nights were you there for?
Hi Emily, Tromso was a great spot to see the lights. I did a photography tour the first night and then a small van tour the next, both which took us nearly to the border with Finland! I think in total I was there 3 nights, look around for accommodation as it isn’t cheap – I convinced a few people to join me which was a way to bring costs down. Good luck!
