Arctic Norway (Feb 15 – Mar 3, 2017)
4 of us spent 15 days in Northern Norway in February 2017 to experience the arctic winter and photograph the spectacular Northern Lights. This is the day-by-day blog with photographs of the trip.

We then boarded the Hurtigruten ship on the night of Feb 24 to go to Tromsø. We spent 4 days exploring the area before heading to Alta. After spending 2 days there we got back to Oslo.
