What is the midnight sun?

Midnight sun is perhaps the most beautiful natural phenomenon along with the northern lights. Midnight sun occurs because the sun does not set and is best experienced around midnight when the sun is the lowest on the horizon.

The midnight sun can be observed in the Bodø area from the beginning of June to mid July, but a trip in the weeks both before and after can be just as great. Book a trip with Explore Salten and we will make sure you get the best experience!
