The north of Norway is close to the Artic Circle. That means that in midsummer it is bright for the whole day and in winter it is dusk all day long. It is driest and warmest in the south around Oslo.
Do you always feel like the days go by too quickly when you’re on holiday? Not in Norway! In the summer months the sun does not set at all above the Arctic Circle. If the weather is good you can still see it in the sky even at midnight! At least darkness can’t ruin your plans for exciting activities.
