Getting there

There are many domestic airports throughout Northern Norway and all have good connections to Oslo and other main hub airports. There are some direct flights into some of the more commonly visited airports such as Tromsø and Alta all year round. For some of the more challenging areas to navigate such as the Lofoten Islands there are a variety of options such as ferry transport as well as private boats. Throughout the country there is a good bus route and train services are also available to destinations further north and south and cross border in some locations.

Climate

The weather in Northern Norway has an average winter temperature of -2.2°C rising to 15.3°C in the summer which makes Northern Norway an excellent place to visit year-round.

Destinations within Northern Norway which lie above the Arctic Circle enjoy the midnight sun in June for around a month (and extended sunlight hours throughout the rest of the spring and summer) and in the winter the sun sets completely, not rising above the horizon in late-November until late-January. Over the winter months the dark skies and latitude of Arctic Norway benefits from spectacular displays of the northern lights.

Geography

Northern Norway boasts a host of geographical highlights; the country is full of glaciers, high plateaus and rugged mountains broken by fertile valleys and a coastline deeply indented by fjords making places such as the Lofoten Islands in particular a photographers paradise.

Tromsø is located in northern Norway, with the majority of the city located on the island of Tromsøya. It is situated 350km within the Arctic Circle and is the largest urban area in northern Norway. Even though Tromsø is on the same latitude as Alaska it benefits from the Gulf Stream which brings vast amount of tropical air every year raising the average temperature. At 69° north, it is the perfect destination for a Norway northern lights holiday.
