Lofoten by midnight © Sveinung Johansen

With 24 hours of daylight in summer, there is plenty of time to indulge in activities like kayaking, golfing, exploring, surfing, hiking and fishing in Arctic Norway.

The midnight sun, which can be enjoyed anywhere above the Arctic Circle in summer, features high on the list of most travelers to Norway. What is it all about? At this latitude, the sun doesn't set during the summer months, so one can, given fair weather, see the sun for a continuous 24 hours.

How long the midnight sun season lasts depends on how far north one is. At the Arctic Circle in the county of Nordland, you can see the midnight sun from 12 June to 1 July; at the North Cape in Finnmark you can see it from 14 May to 29 July; and at the North Pole the sun does not set for six months.
