A Weekend In Tromsø

The weekend before Christmas we managed a weekend away in Tromsø, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Tromsø is known as the Paris of the North: something on which they play heavily, even with the Christmas decorations . . .

We stayed at the Aurora Hotel, right on the water front:

Admittedly the name sounds a bit cheesy, especially when one of the unique selling points is an outdoor jacuzzi for watching the northern lights. However, we jumped in, and were treated to one of the best displays of aurora in a very long time! Sadly due to the vapour from the hot water it wasn’t possible to get a picture with us and aurora at the same time.

The only problem was that the sub-zero temperatures froze my feet to the pool decking when I got out to take pictures!
