Experience the midnight sun
24 hours of sunshine!
The sun shines 24 hours a day in Vesterålen. Midnight sun means that the sun is visible over the horizon at midnight, or at 1am during our summer time.
It’s fascinating to see the sun shining in the middle of the night
On Hadseløya we experience the midnight sun in the period between 23 May and 20 July. We are talking about weeks and months during which this energizing light shines around the clock. Residents sleep less during this period. It is fascinating to be up in the middle of the night and still have daylight. Come experience it for yourself! Our partner Adventure 4 Life has regular departures for tours where you get the possibility to experience the midnight sun. These are tours either combining mountains and midnight sun, or where you travel to a camp to experience this natural phenomenon. Transport from and to the hotel is included in their midnight sun experience offers. For more information, click here.
