Tromsø: 6 d.
If you want something special instead of fireworks on New Year's Eve, go to Tromsø, Norway. This is one of the best places to chase and admire a natural phenomenon, called the Northern Lights. Nothing is guaranteed, mainly due to the cloudy weather, but in the end we were rewarded for our patience. Oh, and there is also a mountain nearby that provides a cool vantage point to spot the city from.
