The day that never ends

From May to August, Northern Norway is bathed in light, never actually getting dark.

The locals go crazy, sitting on their patios until the early hours, going for midnight hikes and enjoying outdoor festivals in the midnight sun. Read more about the 24-hour golden summer here.
