The aurora borealis, or commonly known as Northern lights has been fascinating travelers to Norway and locals alike for generations.

Each appearance of the northern lights is unique. Often you see three green bands across the night sky. Or the lights come as flickering curtains or rolling smoke. The colour is a luminous green, often with a hint of pink along the edge, and occasionally with a deep violet centre. The colour palette seems to come from the 1980s.

If there is a lot of activity up there, the northern lights explode for a minute or two in a corona. The next minute it is all over, and you ask yourself whether this was real or just an Arctic fata morgana.

You cannot stop watch nature’s own theater unfold above you as the most spectacular light show takes center stage: The northern lights with you in the front row.

This magnificient light show can take many forms and in colors. Here we collected nine photos of Northern lights which were taken mostly in Northern Norway. Enjoy it!

Norway will soon have the world’s first floating snowflake hotel.
Dutch Docklands is currently working on a project of a floating 5-star hotel in Norway in one of the most beautiful natural surroundings on earth. The design is based on an icecrystal which blends-in naturally with the “winter environment” between the most beautiful fjords. The hotel with a diameter of 120 meter will have 86 rooms, conference rooms, spa & wellness facilities and is completely self supporting and self-sustainable.
A wall of windows will offer views of the snow-capped Norwegian coast, as well as the potential for some epic northern lights shows, writes Huffingtonpost.
The snowflake will be situated near Tromsø, a popular tourist town in the Arctic Circle known as a superb place to see the northern lights. Developers will tether the massive snowflake to the fjord’s floor, though it will be able to float about six to 10 feet from its center.
The Krystall is schedueld to open at the end of 2016, a hotel rep told The Huffington Post in an email.
