Have you had the opportunity to see the magical northern lights dancing on the sky? Or gone canoeing in the midnight sun? Northern Norway offers the possibility to experience something truly unique.



The northern lights, or Aurora Borealis, are natures most spectacular light show. Norway is one of the worlds best destinations to experience the magical natural phenomenon, and for this reason we receive visitors from all over the world. 

The phenomenon is technically happening throughout the year, but for us to be able to see it we need it to be dark and preferably a clear sky. The winter season is for this reason the best time to experience the light show.  Are you coming to Bardufoss to experience the Northern lights we recommend that you visit in the period October to April.

Summer nights in Northern Norway are quite unique. In Bardufoss you can experience the midnight sun from the 23rd of May to the 19th of July. The sun never sets in this period. One can therefore hike or go canoeing throughout the night. 

Places above the arctic circle experience the midnight sun, also called the polar day, due to the axial tilt of the Earth. The further north you get the longer the period of the midnight sun in the summer.  During the winters we experience the opposite, the polar nights, when the sun never rise for a few months.
