Arctic Circle Cruise October 2019 - Alta part 2

After we had gone ashore we travelled to see some of the local sights.
Once again, the photos will be clearer if they are clicked on.

The Cathedral of the Northern Lights

Sami camp

In the evening we had a private tour booked to hopefully find the Northern Lights.

But all we found was snow!

Our Sami driver /guide stopped for us to have coffee and cake while he rang around to see if any other guides had found clear sky.

We had headed for Finland and then back towards Tromso where we had been the previous day, but no luck.
We had been following the snow plough and this photo shows how deep the snow was.
We did get to see the Northern Lights the next day, but that will be in the next post.

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the Wordless Wednesday hop.

We love all the snow. Mom has photos from the fjords where the snow was higher than the bus on the sides of the roads.

I would cry like a wee babee if I had that much snow on my property. The photos are awesome though. I'll bet this village is beautiful in December with Christmas lights etc { 4th from bottom } ☺☺♥♥

That snow sure does get everywhere up that way. The buildings always seem very striking, though nature seems to have the best shots. I do hope you didnt have to use those tents as I swear I saw a brass monkey in one, MOL
