Searching for the Northern Lights by Mr Chris Parfitt

Tromsa

A fascinating talk about a journey to Tromsø and beyond.  Tromsø is 200 miles within the Arctic Circle, it has snow on the ground from September to April.  Plus it has very long days and very long nights (twilights) depending on the time of year. It is one of the best places to view the Northern Lights, though as Chris explained getting a photograph of the lights is not that easy.

During the talk, we learnt about heated pavements, avalanche fences, underground road systems, shopping on skis and dried fish.  I definitely want to visit to Norway after such an interesting talk.
