I wanna experience perpetual light and perpetual darkness, as well as see the northern lights. That's all in the "must-do" list.

BTW Litotes, what city in Norway are you from?
I am from Fredrikstad, which lies approximately 100 kilometers south of the capital, Oslo.

I agree, this part of the world is not for you, at least not in winter. Although you'd have enjoyed the northern lights (Aurora borealis). There is scarcely a more fantastic sight on this earth.

That picture is splendid but it's something else to see it live - it twists and turns and changes shape in an instant. Really fantastic.

Depends on what you're after. Snow is an uncertain project, often just old snow waiting to melt is left, and the threes and ground has not yet become green, but we Norwegians love March because it gets so much lighter then - it's the month with most gain in daylight. Also it tends to get warmer, though it can still be cold.

August is my favourite month. I don't think our friend Kalle's forum name is chosen randomly. He comes from as far North as I do.
