Thanks to Hurtigruten Cruises for sponsoring today's discussion.
What's on Your Bucket List?
The Northern Lights.
Glorious, awe-inspiring, and just plain mystifying.
Is Seeing the Northern Lights on Your Bucket List? It's been on mine for years. And now that I know about Hurtigruten Cruises, I'm more excited than ever about crossing this one off my list.
Now... some might question why I'd even think about escaping the Wisconsin cold for the cold Norwegian weather, but there is something about the Arctic wilderness that is intriguing. Since I love to travel (and crave adventure), braving the cold to experience the Northern Lights in all their glory seems inevitable.
And the excursions....
Forget snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins. I'll take Dog Sledding, an Eagle Safari and a Snowmobile Trip in the Polar Night any day of the week. Seriously--think about it. To experience a tradition like dog sledding that is so deeply rooted in history would be a phenomenal and (for most people) a once in a lifetime opportunity. I can so easily imagine the cold wind in my face as we're whipping along the snowy trails. And visiting with the huskies--huge bonus!
Norway offers year-round beauty. With emerald green grass in the spring...
Northern lights that offer astounding beauty almost every night, but are more vibrant during the winter months...
Coastal towns with character and charm...
Who wouldn't want to experience a Classic Winter Voyage to this picturesque locale? I could spend days exploring it! Hurtigruten Cruises offers a variety of cruise options for all seasons, with experiences full of Northern Lights, excursions and the midnight sun.
I'm a bit of a dreamer. And traveler. Boy, do I love to travel. It's been a while since I've traveled to Europe, but I'm excited that Europe is on our family vacation bucket list. And Norway--well, it looks like we might have to extend our trip to include a Norway Voyage.
That looks amazing! I've never been to Europe, but I'm dying to go!
If you go can I tag along?!? I've wanted to go forever. I like the coldness of it all too & I could totally learn to dog sled. Hah.
Its not on my list, but i would not stop at the chance of seeing it.. Great shots!
Yes it is! so beautiful!
Actually, I've mentioned it a few times in passing, but after reading and seeing your beautiful photos it defintely is now!

As frigid cold as it can be it is also jaw-dropping gorgeous! Definitely on my bucket list too!
It's really looks amazing. I have never ever been to Europe. But, I will try to visit Europe once.
I'm not a fan of the cold AT ALL, but my word I want to go see the Northern Lights now =)
Oh yes, it would be something special.
I hope I get to see Northern Lights one day.
Yes! It's actually on my bucket list after reading this. Thank you for the advice.

There are tons of things on my bucket list and slowly but surely I will get to them. Love your photos.
