Last February 2019 I finally made it to Norway, unofficially country number 100 and decided to visit Kristiansand in winter. Why choose Oslo when you can also travel to Kristiansand? It turned out to be a great choice as I had an amazing time. This was also due to Clarion Hotel Ernst Kristiansand where I stayed while traveling around Southern Norway.
Visit Kristiansand in winter? Yes why not? It is simple, when everyone goes right, I tend to go left. So why not? It was my first time in Norway and I did not just want to see Oslo, I also wanted to travel through Norway a little and see some more than only the capital.
Experiencing the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, is topping the bucketlist of many travelers. It was on top of mine for a couple of years, until I decided to just go for it. Destinations where you can spot the Northern Lights are not the cheapest, but it is worth every penny, trust me. These tips for chasing the Northern Lights in Tromso will help you making the most of this epic travel adventure.
