Northern Norway Travelling Tips

Northern Norway is bathed in light in summer. The constant daylight lasts for four whole months on Svalbard, two and a half months at the North Cape, two months in Tromsø and over a month in Bodø. From the sculptural summits of Helgeland, the midnight sun can be seen dipping into the sea at midsummer. Summer nights can be spent climbing the nearest mountain, enjoying outdoor festivals or going fishing. Kayaking in the archipelago, boat rides to bird cliffs, whale watching and bike rides on winding coastal roads — the sunlight makes us happy and gives us energy. Here are a few ideas for summer in Northern Norway:
