Experience the midnight sun

24 hours of sunshine!

The sun shines 24 hours a day in Vesterålen. The Midnight Sun means that the sun shines over the horizon at midnight, or at 1 am. when we have summer time.

It’s fascinating to have daylight in the middle of the night

We can experience the Midnight Sun in the period between the 23rd. of May and the 20th. of July at the Hadsel island. We are talking about weeks and months where this energizing light shines around the clock.

Residents sleep less during this period of the year. It is fascinating to be up in the middle of the night and still have daylight.

You just have to experience the Midnight Sun when you are in our area.

Our partner, Adventure 4 Life, has regular departures on trips where you get the possibility to experience the Midnight Sun. Here, you find tours combining mountains and midnight sun,
as well as tours where you travel to a camp to experience this natural phenomenon. Transport from and to the hotel is part of their total offer of the Midnight Sun experiences.
