Tromsø

Norway
Tromsø is a city in the very northernmost part of Norway. It is almost 350 km north of the Arctic Circle and is one of the best places to view the spectacular Northern Lights in winter.

Personal note

Seeing the northern lights, or the aurora borealis, as they are also known, is a jaw-dropping and mystical moment. Perhaps here given the remoteness you will see them clearly (I didn't have much luck in Reykjavík). The lights are at their most frequent in late autumn and winter/early spring.
