    The Aurora Changes Schedule

    I saw the Lights in the evening before leaving Tromso but the light pollution from the town made them faint. Alta is better.

    Northern Lights

    You need good thermal underwear and a waterproof coat, and ideally waterproof trousers. Snow boots or waterproof walking boots over which I used Yaktrax for the icy conditions. Silk liner gloves are useful for photography too. On board is fine but out on deck and ashore it can be cold - it was -25C when I went on the Northern Lights excursion! One of my best ever cruises.

    Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen at Christmas

    i have to admit to buying a lot - I mean a LOT - of beautiful Christmas decs last time I was there in December. I am pretty sure they took credit cards. It was wonderful - cold but with flaming braziers to warm yourself beside and plenty of Gluwein to warm your insides.

    Northern Lights clothing and general tips

    This was what I wore in 2014. M&S grade 4 thermals were fine. You definitely need silk liner gloves if you want to work a camera! At the coldest - -28C - I wore two pairs M&S thermal leggings, cotton trackie trousers, waterproof overtrousers, thermal socks and snow boots (for grip). On top I had a long-sleeve thermal vest, short sleeve thermal vest, thin knitted cotton polo neck top, polartec fleece and waterproof coat. My best buy was a thermal hood from Aldi! And you need waterproof mittens to go over the silk liner gloves. Also - get some ice grips. Mine were YakTrax which are spring type so I didn't always have to remove them indoors, whereas the spiky kind had to be removed. I was warm as toast.
