I am flying Dublin - Oslo in January for 5 days. The initial Forspill (Prelude) - Various - Aurora Borealis (Music From Norway) was to then get a connecting flight to Tromso to see the northern lights but between expensive flights we are budget travellers! Our reason for this trip is solely to try Le Grand Rabbi (B.O.F.
Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob) - Vladimir Cosma - Disque DOr (Vol. 1) get a glimpse of the famous Northern Lights,is there towns further out from Oslo city where we could stay at and has anyone in Oslo seen the northern lights here? To follow on from this these are the dates 5th-9th Jan We would preferably love to travel from Shannon in IrelandDublin is our 2nd choice and London 3rd.
Everyway Ive tried to get to Tromso is either too dear or involves flying from London and then the Oslo -Tromso flight time clashes with that flight. Aurora rarely appears in Osloso not very probable if you are here for a few days only. This August aurora was seen all over South Norway :.
I ended up finding flight times better from Dublin on a Thursday which avoided a ridiculous early morning start. I checked wideroe for flights from Oslo to Tromso but they are expensive. If you can get cheap flights to Gatwick, consider it. I haven't stayed at Gatwick but you could post on the London forum for advice on airport hotels. August 4th was the last time it was an amazing Aurora show over southern NorwayDenmarkGermany and Scotland If the flights tickets is so expensive, why not check the train, they have sometimes "minipris" to or one way You can always try to check prices again in November - I have noticed that Norwegian tend to put their cheapest tickets Forspill (Prelude) - Various - Aurora Borealis (Music From Norway) two months before departure.
I've seen fantastic aurora in Oslobut it could be years apart. Normally, auroras form between the 65th and 72nd parallel:. A return ticket Oslo - Alta - Oslo on your dates costs 1.
