Midnight Sun Experience in Norway - A unique and unforgettable phenomenon

Lyngen Lodge Logo

Imagine opening the door and stepping out from the luxury of the Lodge. The sun is shining down on you, the birds are singing in the trees, and you get ready for your next activity. It’s broad daylight, but it’s midnight.

During the summer months, the whole region of the Lyngen Alps hardly seems to sleep. Due to the high latitude, the sun shines for 24 hours a day. Being a part of this is an unforgettable experience, whether you are taking part in an activity, partaking in an expert photography course, or simply sitting back and appreciating the best midnight sun experience.

What is the Midnight Sun in Norway?

Between the 18th May and the 26th July, the Lyngen Alps and Lapland are blessed with a sun that shines for 24 hours a day, with no darkness during the night. Lyngen Lodge has a latitude of 69.9 degrees, lying 500km north of the Arctic Circle. This means that the sun does not set below the horizon in the summer months, providing a unique and unforgettable experience.

Feedback from our guests about the stunning Midnight Sun experience:

“Our honeymoon was really incredible”
“We had such a great time at the lodge, our honeymoon was really incredible and more than we could have hoped for. We keep saying that the best part was our first few nights in Lyngen and the first night seeing the Midnight Sun. But especially how great you, Steve and Laura were to us, we really appreciated the warm hospitality!”
