Nothing can quite prepare you for the staggeringly beautiful natural phenomenon of the aurora borealis – the Northern Lights – as explosions of iridescent greens, pinks, yellows and blues flash and soar across the night sky in an incredible, almost surreal, display of celestial pyrotechnics.
For some of the highest chances of seeing the Northern Lights in mainland Europe, head to Tromsø, deep within the Arctic Circle and on the same latitude as Alaska and Siberia. By day, you can explore this historic island city, its iconic cathedral and its fascinating museums, or take your pick of the wide-ranging activities available locally, which include dog-sledding, snowshoeing and reindeer safaris. When darkness falls, go in search of the aurora borealis, accompanied on your second night by an experienced and enthusiastic local guide. They are elusive and hard to predict, but witnessing the colourful swirls of light dancing across the inky black sky is an experience you will never forget.
