Northern Norway Travelling Tips

The Polar Night rules Northern Norway. Only in the far south a golden sun peeks between the mountain tops. Still, it isn't all darkness; at midday the southern sky shines in red, pink and gold, and in the early afternoon the mountains and the sea bathe in a deep, clear, transparent blue. No wonder we often call the Polar Night the time of colours. In Svalbard, it's dark all day, but in the arid arctic climate of the archipelago, the mountains are visible in the starlight. The frail rays of the Northern Lights are free to play in the long night.
