Tromsø is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I went there for the first time last christmas with my family. It was so amazing it motivated me to return in the summer, which I will be doing this summer – to see it in a very different ‘light’.
When we were there, the sun remained below the horizon. There was a short twilight period of about 3 hours where the sun approached the horizon, and the sky was a deep velvet blue. The sky nearest the sun turned pink and orange briefly around 12, heralding a sunrise that never came. The icy mountains as backdrop made a spectacular sight. By 14:00 it was all but black again.
In a few weeks I will passing Tromsø in 24 hour light on my bike. I am looking forward to seeing this beautiful city in the summer sun.
