TRAVEL PERIOD: WINTER
Hunting The Lights
Tromsø is the largest city north of the polar circle and it also holds the largest university, the largest brewery and largest cathedral of the north. The town is also known as the gate to the Arctic Sea. The Lofoten islands consists of mountains and sharp peaks, open waters and sheltered bays, beaches and wide, untouched areas. Like a rocky wall, they stretch towards the south-west into the ocean. Thanks to the gulf stream, the climate is much milder than in other areas of the world, located on the same degree of latitude
