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 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 must 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.
