Tromso Northern Lights by Baard Loken, Visit Norway

Northern Lights in Tromso

Due to its northern latitude, Tromso is lucky to have the midnight sun during the summer, and the amazing Northern Lights from October through March. The midnight sun occurs from May 21 to July 21. Due to Tromso’s latitude, twilight is long, meaning there is no real darkness between late April and mid-August.

Tromso is in the middle of the Northern Lights zone, and is one of the best places in the world to observe the aurora borealis. Because of the Earth’s rotation, Tromso moves into the aurora zone around 6 pm, and moves out again around midnight.

The mean temperature in Tromso in January is approx. -4º Celsius. Heavy snowfall is a normal feature, even in late spring. The all-time record for snow depth was set on 29 April 1997, with 240 cm (94.5 in) of snow on the ground.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
