[Trip] Iceland- Glacier Walk and Northern light Tour

We decided to go on a glacier walk and northern light tour because the boy’s sister chose it and we decided to tag along. My first impression of the glacier walk is because we get to walk inside the glacier cave. 707 more words

Northern light is also known as Aurora Borealis. It is caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. Anyway, if you want to know more about it, go to wikipedia and read about it. 490 more words

Chasing the Northern Light!

Being in Alta, known as the “City of the Northern Lights”, I off course had to go chasing it! As dark surroundings and nice weather is important to be able to see it, I signed up for the trip “Hunting the Northern Lights” by the company  215 more words

北國風情 - 挪威

老友PY去年到挪威追赏北極光,回來大力推薦,並告訴我這一兩年是北極光最活躍的,下個周期可能要等十二年了!

就是這樣PY和我便在三月四日從香港經倫敦,奥斯陸,到達挪威的極光之城:Tromso!

Tromso 是挪威第七大城市,人口只有七萬多人,第一感覺是寧静,雖然天氣比香港冷,白雪片地,但没有一點寒冷,反覺舒暢!

我們第一時間便是去訂追北極光的導遊,因為天文台预测天氣可能會變壞…

第一晚真的讓我們看到了,雖然有雲,但仍感覺到不同的氣體在黑夜中舞動,可惜我攝影技術未到家,錯過很多機會…

第二天我們驅車四處遊覽,可能因近北極,冰川溶化的關係,附近很多島嶼,我們剩渡輪,穿過不少山洞,到處風光如畫,非常怡人!

晚上到挪威與芬蘭的交界,希望能追光,可惜突然下了一場大雪,正準備掉頭走,但雪太大,車被雪卡着了…  冰天雪地,兩個女子,怎樣也無法推動汽車…  無法,拿着電筒,向路過的車求救,没想到第一輛車经過便停下來幫手,兩男的知道問题所在,他們還主動叫停了朋友的車來助手!他們到附近找到鏟,把雪鏟開,五個大男子加一輛 pickup truck 才把車拉出來!幸好我們在挪威,不然,我倆定凍死異鄉…

車子開動後,突然雪過天清,滿天星斗,但因今次意外,怕汽車會有問题,决定到别處去,錯過了一次很好的追星追光機會!

之後幾天,天氣都不如理想,不是下雪,便是大風大浪,我們乘坐的 Hurtigruten郵輪也無法進入太狭窄的通道,要我們改乘計程車往下一站 Svolvar…

在 Svolvar, 住的 Thon Hotel 就在碼頭旁邊,非常方便!挪威的漁業非常發達,碼頭每天都有漁船進出,海鷗,鴨子便隨之而至,PY兩天的早上都以拍攝牠們為樂!

回程本應是從 Svolvar乘郵輪往 Bodo 再轉飛機回港,可惜因風浪的關係,船無法泊岸,只能在船上住多一天,幸好第二天找到機票! 70 more words
