When on the quest to see the Northern Lights, and check another item off the bucket list, we
would be remiss if the gorgeous country of Norway doesn’t make its way into conversation.
Famously known as one of the Viking homelands, this beautiful country stands as a testament
to natural arctic beauty and is often the site of many people’s first experience with the Earth’s
natural festival of lights. With so much natural beauty and renown around the planet, there is
definitely something all of us would enjoy!
One of the first things that comes to mind when thinking about Norway is the raw natural beauty
to be found just about anywhere you look. So to begin our journey we will start with the 3rd
northernmost towns on the planet, Svalbard! Located at 78 degrees North of the equator, and
only 1300km from the North Pole, the nearly non-existent light pollution found around the town, is a photographer’s paradise. With how far North the town is located, it offers one of the best opportunities to actually see the lights. So sightseer’s, don’t forget your skis, and photographers, grab your lenses, because this is a natural snowscape to write home about.
If city-life is more your style, then we can look no further than Trondheim, Norway. Whether we want to be pampered at a 5-star establishment like the elegant Britannia Hotel, or party at one of the numerous music festivals held throughout the year, this city offers it all. Whether you prefer to wait for nightfall at the spa, or by biking with the family through the gorgeous cityscape, there is plenty of opportunity to pass the time as we anxiously await the lightshow of a lifetime.

We at Book Here Give Here specialize in world-wide experiences, and Norway is but one country within the Auroral Oval.
