Upcoming: Northern Norway

03 Dec December 03

I just booked my flights for the first Holiday of 2019 and am very excited to finally make it to Northern Norway! During the course of 11 days, I will see the snow capped peaks of the Lofoten combined with the Northern Lights and then hitch hike up all the way to Tromsø, Norway’s capital of chasing the infamous Aurora Borealis.

Traveling to Northern Norway

As usual, I am looking for cool people to join me – so write me in case you are interested! I will land in Bodø on the 25th of January and take the ferry to Moskenes the next morning. I also booked a flight out from Tromsø on the 4th of February. Note that there will only be about 5 hours of daylight during this time of the year, but at least it will not be as cold as you might expect for such a northern area. The Gulfstream is pulling in warm air and its just -1.2°C on Average in February! Also note that I have timed this trip to the moon cycle, making sure I am getting to Tromsø close to new moon. You do not want any light pollution when chasing those Northern Lights!

Also, if anyone is familiar with the area, I would greatly appreciate any feedback on my route! While I covered the most famous parts in the Lofoten already, I am sure there are some hidden gems as well to point out. Since my plan is to hitch hike from the Lofoten to Tromsø, I also wonder what kind of natural highlights are along the way there? The only stop I planned to break the journey from Henningsvær on the 450km long road is Bjerkvik, but I am sure there will be many nice places to see along the way? Thanks for any input on that regard in advance 🙂
