What has OutdoorDuo done for me?

  Add a 'What has ...'

Thank you Outdoor Duo for connecting us back in 2015 ... 3 years on we're now a happily married couple! V&M x

I have met somebody to share with.

This has been a great group for friendships and great outdoor experiences as well as for dating. I now have a life partner, and have recommended OD to others who've joined. My heartfelt thanks to you! xx

Have a look at Hurtigruten.....they guarantee sightings on certain voyages so if you don’t see them they give you a free trip!

Great ships...I’ve been to both Antarctic and Arctic with them, both massively enjoyable trips. And you get to visit the incredibly moving Louise Bourgeois installation at Varno.....

Hi Frankie.... Just back from Iceland , unfortunately I didn’t get to see the northern lights
While I was there I spoke to lots of people about them, some had seen them by accident,others spent hours on boats, buses and in cars traveling around with no luck, Two Scottish Ladies I spoke to were out till 3am just to get a glimpse of them which they did,they phoned home delighted next morning to tell friends and family only to be told that they had been visible from the Village
we’re they lived.
So I would say Luck plays the biggest part along with the 3 other factors,Darkness, Clear Skies and a Solar Wind.

Hello Frankie, look up ;- For a useful Aurora forecast that was always very accurate while I was working in Iceland. Tonight's forecast is very high so worth a look north if skies clear. But be warned, they can come and go very quickly. I spent many hours on watch on the balcony and was duly rewarded

Hurtigruten have an offer of single supplement free travel for 14 nights full board and including all on board lectures from top of their game people during even the peak months which is incredible value....and on their most iconic ship MS Lofoten......I don’t work for them, honest, I’m just a huge fan. Their ships are a cross between a long distance Italy-Greece ferry and a big but basic private yacht....comfortable enough but nothing poncey. And hence perfect. And from my Arctic sailor friends at Greenwich Yacht Club I truly believe that the best chance you have of viewing Northern Lights is to be at sea.....?

Hi Frankie I went to Iceland and I did see the lights but if I didn't we still had a fabulous time at the Blue Lagoon and doing the golden circle. We visited the Geezers and Gullfoss canyon waterfall.
We did do the whale watching that I can highly recommend DON'T DO. All day freezing our butt's off and didn't even see a puffin lol. ��

Hi Frankie I also saw the lights when we went to Iceland..and it was at the end of March which is towards the end of the season for aurora activity. Most tours will take you out up to 3 times if you don't get to view them 1st time round. Look at website for a forecast. Good luck ��

The northern lights belt hits?Northern Norway?over the Lofoten Islands (although over the past years, aurora has been spotted increasingly more often over Tr?ndelag, further to the south), and follows the coast all the way up to the North Cape and beyond.?One place in this area is often as good as another??– you can observe the same northern lights in Lofoten as in Troms? 500 kilometres further north, just from a different?angle.

It’s important to remember that aurora can be a bit of a diva, and she will only start the show when she feels the time is right. Patience is a virtue, also when chasing the northern lights. But to maximize your chances of a sighting, know that the lights are at their?most frequent in late autumn and winter/early?spring.
Between late September and late March, it is dark in Northern Norway in the best northern lights hours, which is between?6pm and 1am.
