We will be staying at Malangen Brygger in the 1st week of December for a week - the main aim is to relax in the nice cottage (has a sauna) and also hopefully view the lights.
They have a little place up the hill called Camp Nikka that's about 15mins walk from the accomodation. The cottage also has a balcony looking right out into the fjords.
If the conditions are favourable, am I correct that we should not have a problem seeing the Northern Lights in Malangen? Its supposed to be dark enough since its in the countryside so I gather it should be better than trying to view the lights in Tromso city itself.
After reading all the reviews on the tours that "chase" the northern lights, we cant take the kind of gruelling hours and will have also have a problem with toilet breaks if it gets too long. Besides the cost is a little too much for us as there are 3 of us and we dont drive. (Malangen has a pickup service @ NOK700 pp return).
Just want to be sure that Malangen is one of the places we may have a chance in seeing the Aurora if the conditions are favourable.
