MidnattssolMidnight sun – what is this penomenon? 

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. Explore Salten will help you find a perfect time and make sure you get the best experience possible!

RIB from Bodø city center

You do not have to travel to Tromsø or Alta to experience the midnight sun. With Explore Salten in Bodø you get a unique and amazing midnight sun experience with an even deeper red color than further north.

The trip goes from the harbour in Bodø city center at 11:00PM with RIB boat to the northern side of town where the best view of the sun is. Here we will enjoy the deep red color of the sun. 

With Landegode and the Lofoten islands as a background, we believe Bodø is the perfect place to experience the midnight sun.
