What people are saying:

Alta, Norway is the extreme north of Northern Europe, located at 70 degrees north latitude in the Arctic Circle. In 1892, the first photo of aurora in human history was born at the Aurora Observatory in Alta. Due to the influence of the warm Atlantic current, the temperature in Alta is not exaggeratedly low in winter. We have been here at most minus 8 or 9 degrees. In addition, because it is by the sea, there are more sunny weather, suitable for viewing the aurora. I took everyone to the local aurora chasing activity. The guide will drive to the place where the aurora is most likely to be seen according to the weather conditions. Alta’s overall probability of seeing aurora is over 91%. But be sure to wear warmer clothes. It is still very cold at night in the Arctic. It is best to bring some warm babies to your body and soles. Camera parameters needed when shooting aurora: aperture 4.0 or more, the bigger the better, the shutter speed is more than 20 seconds ISO: 800-1600, manual focus is better, the weather is cold, more batteries are better, a wide-angle lens tripod is a must! . Many years later, I may not remember the splendor of the Northern Lights but only the frozen feet in the snow, the temperature in the scarf, the bonfire under the twinkling stars, and the singing of you all over the sky.
