A tip on layers...
Don't have too many, you're better of with fewer big layers. This is especially true if you're doing excursions and will be in/out of a vehicle regularly. Outside you want to be nice and warm but when you get inside (hotel/bus/car etc) you want to be able to remove the layers quickly as it will be warm. I learnt this the hard way the first time I went when I had to strip off on a full bus to remove thermal leggings, I nearly passed out as they had the bus heating on full, I was dressed for standing outside in -12C for several hours (it was worth it!). The second time I went I refined my layering to fewer big layers and found it much better (and it was even colder, -15C some days).
GREAT advice! And what a great shot you created! I sooooo hope we get the see the aurora at least once (preferably without gail force winds. LOL!!)
