The magical phenomenon of Aurora Borealis is best viewed in early spring or autumn, due to 24 hour daylight in summer.


And right now is a fantastic time to bask in their presence, judging by recent pictures.

Yesterday, paraglider Horacio Llorens braved sub-zero temperatures to glide through and "dance" with the lights in Tromso - decked out in a wetsuit and battery-operated heated gloves, of course.

The town has plenty more wintery activities on offer as well, including husky sledding and whale safaris.

Check out some of the most recent pictures coming out of Tromso:
