we are visiting Tromso 30th October. can we see the northern lights at this time of year? and how cold is it likely to be? can we expect snow or is it just rain. can you suggest a good / but reasonable / seafood restaurant. looking forward to it immensely.

many thanks

Of course, Aurora is already dancing for us, and have done it since August 24th..;) Normally the NL season goes between September to April.

Sometimes we have full snowy winter in October, but you actually never know... In 2009 we had one week with snow in October, before all melted and didn`t came back before 2 days before Christmas. In 2007 we get the first snow in mid-September...

The temperature can be quite cold, especially if it start to be windy, but I guess the temp will be on 0-5 minus in end of October...

Now, in begin of October, it`s just beautiful here... Lovely sunshine and up to 10 plus, and under last nights Aurora chasing the temp was about 5 plus, and no wind...

About clothing: Wool layer close to the body, then a jumper a or fleece and wind/water proof jacket/trousers. Hat, scarf and gloves. Mitten-gloves is best!

For restaurants, please check destinasjontromso.no/english/going_out.html

For the best one;

Welcome to Tromsø, Arctic Norway and enjoy!
