NORTHERN LIGHTS

Northern lights or aurora borealis has fascinated for centuries and have always been associated with myths and legends. It is possible to see the northern lights, or aurora borealis, which is the scientific name, between October and February. Although you can theoretically see the northern lights across the country, the light is stronger and more frequent in northern Norway.

Since the aurora often leave something to be desired, it is wise to set aside the whole evening. Since Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon that depends on specific meteorological conditions, there is no guarantee that you will experience it. Combining the Northern Lights hunt with an exciting outing, the trip a oppplevelse anyway.

MIDNIGHT SUN

Experience the wonderful Midnight Sun. The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon where the sun does not go below the horizon. In clear weather you can therefore see the sun 24 hours a day.

The season of the midnight sun depends on how far north you are. In Lofoten sessongen for midnight sun from 28 May - 14 July. Go walking in the middle of the night and let nature show their true colors. The light at night gives the mountains a magical look.
