Weekend to Harstad Norway
A weekend in northern Norway, travel to visit my family, celebrating grandma and meeting my newborn niece for the first time. Visiting the north during February you will have a good chance to experience the northern lights, Aurora Borealis. February is still one of the dark months with very limited daylight. It is most likely to be a cold weekend with sub zero temperatures, bring warm clothes and enjoy life where you wouldn’t think too many people lives. Small city life and arctic experience coming up!
