Hello! Just found out I'll be going to Copenhagen in November for work so we will be turning it into a trip to hopefully cross the Northern Lights off of my husband's bucket list. It seems like there is plenty to keep us busy in the North, but curious if trying to fit in a bit of Southern fjord exploration is biting off too much. I also have no idea where to begin since all of these places are new to me and I don't recognize any of the city/city names outside of Bergen and Oslo.
-Fly from Copenhagen into Bergen, stay for 3 nights or 4 if we can use that as a base for exploring.
-Fly from Bergen to Tromso and look for a Northern Lights excursion
-Somehow get to Lofoton Islands, not sure where to stay here
-Fly out of Oslo or Bergen back to the US?
A little bit about our travel style (which we've devoted exclusively to Southern Europe so this is entering new territory for us!)
-We usually rent a car and we're comfortable driving in other countries
-We try to avoid cities since we live in one and prefer to see smaller towns, etc.
-We don't like to move around a ton/avoid traveling at a fast pace just to check sites off a to-do list. In other words, I would prefer not to spend just 1-2 nights in a place and opt for 3 nights at a minimum. That being said, I understand for the Northern Lights, maybe we only want to spend 2 nights in a place if we're able to catch them.
I appreciate any advice of guidance!!
