Midnight Sun experiences in Narvik

During the summer between late May and mid-July, Narvik invites for spectacular Midnight Sun experiences

Narvik is located north of the Arctic Circle, at 68 degrees north. Especially during the summer month, the sun barely dips below the horizon here, which creates endless bright and beautiful days. The landscape is transformed in yellow, orange and red colours from the glowing sun.

When to discover this natural phenomenon: 25.05 - 20.07

Facts about the Midnight Sun!

The phenomenon occurs because the midnight sun never sets below the horizon at its lowest position during the day. And because the sun never sets, the daylight never goes away. Since the earth is tilted on its axis, and the earth orbits around the sun, that tilt makes the North Pole face towards the sun in the summer, keeping it sunlight even as the earth spins.

Best views for Midnight Sun experiences!

Even though the sun shines beautifully everywhere in Narvik throughout the Midnight Sun season, you have to explore the bright lightning nights from one of the best viewpoints at Narvikfjellet. You forget everything else when you experience the softly breathtaking colours over the fjord and surrounding mountains.
