We are hoping to travel to Norway next early January. We will visit Oslo, Tromso and Kirkenes. One the main reasons for this travel time is to view the Northern lights.
I understand that daylight hours are extremely short and does that mean that there will be sunshine rays or blue sky peaking through at all?.........not even for an hour?
I have heard that most Winter travellers visit in February but I wanted to avoid the busy holidays, but now I'm worried that I won't get to see much scenery due to darkness!
Also, are places of interest closed between Christmas and New year generally?
I would greatly appreciate anyone's thoughts! Many thanks.
