In our search for the northern lights, this time we chose the city of Alta, in the north of Norway, hoping to have more options to see auroras if we went further north and also decided to stay in some cabins in the middle of the forest, to have less light pollution. All very well planned, although the trip did not start very well. We missed the connecting flight in Oslo and arrived at late night to our final destination. First warning. It was a tough trip, very cold weather (up to 24 degrees below zero), impassable roads (the only road that led to the hotel was always covered in snow) and a couple of small incidents with the car driving on those icy roads full of snow. In exchange for all these inconveniences, we had a few nights with auroras activity but with a lot of light pollution. At last we were able to enjoy the beauty of the northern lights. But it is never enough.
