Endless days in the summer the sun never sets.
“Are you sure That we are awake? It seems to me That yet we sleep, we dream”
― William Shakespeare, A midsummer Night’s Dream
Visiting Arctic Norway in the summer means you will capture the ‘essence of the place’ – all famous romantic travellers seek to discover this essence during their travels. The woods, the forests and the sparse arctic vegetation which covers the entire plain like a carpet. Dense forests of birch trees with their lush foliage, fungi, mosses, lichens, arctic berries, not to mention the breeding season when the woods are populated by birds building nests, bears waking up from their hibernation, reindeer grazing in the dim light, all of which creates a magical atmosphere.
The summer months here are the months of the midnight sun.
The term the “midnight sun” refers to the phenomenon of the consecutive 24 hours and 56 minutes of sunlight north of the Arctic Circle.
During the midnight sun months in these enchanted lands nature forms and transforms all things. It incorporates all living things and creates breathtaking figures.
May to August, the midnight sun lights the Arctic Norway, under that luminous sky,
local legends teach that all beings and objects have souls. Stones, trees, ocean and sand have stories. These stories are told in a Sámi lavvu, a circular tent,
a place for visions and healing.
Come witness the magic of 24 hours of Daylight, come listen to these magical stories.
