Northern Norway is generally recognizable by the tall, dramatic mountains rising straight up from the ocean, the many picturesque fishing villages, and the amazing light. By visiting northern Norway during the winter months, it is very likely you will experience the northern light phenomenon (aurora borealis). Northern Norway is also great to visit during the summer months. In the summer you can experience the midnight sun, hike amazing mountains, and coastal activities such as kayaking, boating, or surfing. Some of our favorite places is Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, and Lygnsalpene.
