We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant. After that we went to SpareBank to exchange money. There were many people in the bank. While I was standing in front of the ticket machine thinking of which ticket I need (there were two types of tickets but all written in Norwegian and I could not understand), a woman walked up to me and helped us shorten the waiting time. She gave me a ticket with the number 401. Then she took another ticket from the machine and walked away.
After that, we walked around Storgata to look for a new pair of warm hand gloves for me to use in the rest of the trip because the hand gloves I had did not keep my fingers warm.
We found a shop named G-Sport then got inside. The sales staff was very friendly and helpful. He asked me to show him my hand gloves. He checked the label and he said it was strange that the pair of hand gloves I had did not keep my hands warm. Finally, I got a pair of mittens that he had recommended.
At 6:30 PM we met Mr. Kjetil Skogli at Radisson SAS to join the Northern Lights Tour. The tour was booked in advanced. We travelled in a group of 8 people, including Mr. Kjetil, and the other people on the tour were a couple, two ladies and a young girl.
That night Mr. Kjetil drove us to three different locations, but unfortunately, none of the locations can view the Northern Lights. I was disappointed, of course. I expected to see them. I saw them at the night before that night so I thought it was natural to see them again at the following night. I wondered if others who joined other groups saw the lights at that night.
After nearly 7 hours of waiting from one place to another, Mr. Kjetil drove us back to the city around 2:00 AM. Although I did not see the auroras at that night but the experience itself was memorable. The waiting, hoping, freezing like a fridge, the people and the stars I saw in the sky were all special to me.
Anyway, Mr. Kjetil was a nice guide and I would still recommend his tour to anyone who is going to visit Tromsø for chasing the Northern Lights. However, I would also recommend to join more other tours and to stay out late every night to get the maximum chance to view the magnificent display of the auroras.
