I'm considering a trip to Oslo > Tromso for this New Years, and after possibly too much reading, wanted some local opinions. I've read that solar activity peaks around Sep/Mar and that trips solely to see the lights aren't recommended, but couldn't find statistics on actual viewings in January.
Would anyone from Norway be able to recommend a go or no go for this trip? About 4-5 days starting on Dec 28?
Or any ideas on activities in Tromso which won't be too costly?
According to weather statistics, average precipitation seems to be in my favor:
And moon illumination end of December is at a beautiful <5%:
Thanks a lot!
