Northern Lights

If going to Tromso around March 21st, take the Number 34 bus in Tromso to the Folk Museum. Walk down to the Jetty and stand and wait for the lights. We had a fantastic show last year and it cost us 5.00 euro for the bus. The lights danced for hours.

If the same weather we have these days continue, you have to stay loooong time for see any clear sky from that jetty... but, at good nights, it`s a lovely place to be..;)

Thanks for the tip, was wondering how to check out the lights on one of our empty nights.

Will be there 4 nights; already planned 2-nights chasing trip with guide, 1-night on hurtigruten return from Skjervoy. Bus 34 it shall be... previously was considering taking the cable car up but not sure when's the last car down

Hi ,

Yes we spent 2 nights on a bus chasing lights but on our final night we took bus 34 to the Museum and went down to the Jetty where we got the best display ever! Enjoy your trip and I hope you get great weather and a great display.

There is no guarntee ever, the OP had luck with the weather and luck with good activity on the good weather day and a good, strong display outshining the city lights.
