This post is for those who requested pics of the Northern Lights which my family was fortunate enough to see 2 years ago. They are taken standing on a frozen lake, ( -12 degrees) some distance from Tromso, where we were staying. We went out seeking the lights with Guide Gunner Tours and I cannot recommend him highly enough. We drove to several places before finally witnessing this amazing spectacle. The next day when we were about to have a reindeer sleigh ride, I was speaking to a lady who had also been out seeking the lights the previous night. I was about to launch into how brilliant they were when she said how disappointed she was that they had seen nothing. I mumbled something and left; who was I to rain on her parade. It just shows though that they are extremely elusive and you really need to be in the right place at the right time. I will never forget that night and although I generally hate the cold, that holiday, filled with ethereal lights and snow was totally magical and an experience I will never forget. A bucket list moment indeed!
