Trip to Oslo and Tromsø, Norway

One of my long-time bucket list items was to see the Northern lights. In January of 2015, my (at the time girlfriend, now wife) and I took a trip to do just that.

Our first stop was in Oslo, as a friend was living there.  She took us around town, and sledding down a hell of a crazy mountain course. Long enough that at the bottom of the hill, you had to catch a train back to the top. Oslo was great, but the real destination was Tromsø, deep in the arctic circle, so we could gaze at the lights.

We booked a two-night excursion with the top rated Tripadvisor company. It was everything we imagined it to be. In between the lightshows, we spent an afternoon dog sledding. Which was also an incredible adventure.
