See the country where the sun never set

Norway, also known as the “Land of the Midnight Sun,” is a country in Northern Europe. It is known as the Land of the Midnight Sun because of the large seasonal variations in daylight, which means that the sun never completely sets like it does anywhere else in the world.

Norway is a country with up to 20 hours of daylight. The term “midnight sun” refers to seeing the sun throughout the day, including at midnight, as the name implies. 

As a result, the midnight sun appears only at certain times of the year and is only visible very close to the Arctic Circle.

The midnight sun can be seen for six months straight at the Arctic Pole, without a break. The midnight sun is visible for a shorter period of time as you move south.

The closer you are to the Arctic pole, the more this phenomenon occurs. Days can be determined by the brightness of the sun during the midnight sun occurrence; as the sun gets dimmer at midnight, its luminosity increases the next day. 

Travel to Norway’s areas above the Arctic Circle to experience these moments for yourself. Tromo, Hammerfest, and Lofoton Island are all places in Norway where you can see the midnight sun.

Visit these places and you will be able to live for days because there is no night. If you went on a tour, don’t forget to get a glimpse of the northern lights.
