Tromsø February Light

Tromsø February Light

Lots and lots of people come to Tromsø to see the Northern Lights. And we do understand why, it’s really quite an amazing sight we never tire of. However, what most people don’t know or don’t think about that much is that the light can be almost as extraordinary and breathtaking at daytime. Today we took a stroll around Folkeparken (the small forest around Tromsø Museum) and Telegrafbukta, and this is what it looked like:

And the best news of all? No need for a car to get here – Folkeparken and Telegrafbukta is just 2 km from our houses. Easy to walk, or you can jump on the number 34 bus that goes past our door. It’s a really great spot for northern lights watching too (our favorite, in fact) so if you put on some warm clothes you can just hang around after the sunset waiting for the Aurora Borealis to come out as well!

Whale research: help identify a whale!

Since we have started offering whale safari trips, we thought we should educate ourselves a bit more on these amazing creatures of the sea. So currently we’re at an exciting whale research seminar dealing with the humpback whales and orcas that are currently feeding on herring in the fjords outside Tromsø. It’s super interesting and we look forward to share all our new knowledge with everyone who want to come whale watching with us!

We’ll just share the most exciting part right away though: Did you know that there are researchers up here (and in other parts of the world, too) who can identify different humpback individuals just by looking at the different shapes and colors of the whale’s tail? Isn’t that amazing?!

Northern Lights show on all-sky camera

Northern Lights show on all-sky camera

We know the feeling: You’re all snuggled up in your warm room or on our cosy couch, you’re a bit tired after a long day out and about, it’s late at night, the temperature outside is below zero – and the most important part on your agenda still remains: catching a glimpse – or preferably a whole amazing, long-lasting, breath-taking, absolutely magical show – of the northern lights. You know you should get out there soon so as to not miss anything, but it’s also just so nice and comfy inside. Wouldn’t it be great if there were some kind of magic tool to find out if anything is going on out there, right from where you’re sitting underneath that warm blanket?

August

The midnight sun left us for now. The midnight August magic is not a bad replacement, if you ask us. Photos taken last night from Sydspissen, a 2 km stroll from our place.

Welcome, August!
