aurora borealis / northern lights


To view the lights, you need : night, clear sky, solar activity and … luck. Even if you have the 3 first conditions, nothing will garantee that the place you are will have lights or not.

Thursday evening it was snowy, the sky cleared up a bit in the evening but still nothing to see apart a fainted green in the sky.

Friday night, snow storm, chances : 0.

Saturday evening after a wonderful day wandering aroung Tromsø, we came back to the lodge and started dinner preparation. Usually in Alaska where I go to see the lights, you need to wait until 11PM at least.

I started dinner preparation around 6H30PM and had a look outside, and was surprised to already see the lights out.

And it was just in front of our lodge:

It started lightly:

Then gets bigger:

After a good hour, we went back inside for dinner, and had a lovely evening.
Just before heading to bed a last look outside and … the show started again:

back home


After a good breakfast we took a taxi back to Tromsø Airport:

-15° that morning, we didn't stay too long outside :)


photo img_2817_resultat

No SAS counters here, only Aviator, the local handling company that only has two desks for 2 A320 leaving at that time.


photo img_2818_resultat

It only took us 10 minutes even without a priority lane.
Aviator is in fact not only the handling agent, it is the airport operator.

Departures are upstairs, and there is a fast track:

There are also boarding gates at ground level, I went to see if I could take better pictures of our plane:

Our gate:

No lounge in Tromsø and most of the shops are closed :( So nothing to do.

Jetway to the aircraft:

The door:

The crew, this time, is super nice, making jokes during the boarding.
The cabin looks like the one on the 738 but is more recent and the recline far better.

The boarding pass:

Boarding is also available through the tarmac for those seated in the back:

Boarding completed and on time push back. We had to be de-iced first:

Bye bye Tromsø


photo img_2858_resultatphoto img_2859_resultat

De-icing in progress:

You can leave really close to the airport here:


photo img_2865_resultat

We back tracked the runway:


photo img_2867_resultatphoto img_2868_resultat

Because 1600 meters for a full A320 will not do it :)

U Turn and line up:

With the snow it is just magical!


photo img_2882_resultatphoto img_2883_resultatphoto img_2884_resultat

So beautiful:

The aircraft is equiped with moodlighting :

Visit to the lavatory:

I just had water and a chocolate snack:


photo img_2893_resultatphoto img_2896_resultat

Again the WiFi works perfectly:

I then had a nap for a solid hour :)


photo img_2898_resultatphoto img_2899_resultat

And almost only woke up when our descent was about to finish:

Conclusion

It was a great flight, the only downside was the BOB, it was free for us, but the selection is very limited.

TOS is a nice airport, a bit sad that mostly everything was closed that sunday morning.

OSL is a breeze, but when you connect from a domestic flight to an international flight only :)

Thanks for reading!
