If you thought that winter in Arctic Norway was all doom and gloom, think again! There may be no sun at all for many weeks up beyond the Polar Circle, but the night shines instead with much more than just one light.
It is pretty safe to say that the huge majority of the world population has never experienced the glorious beauty of the Arctic Polar Night, or as it is called in Norway, Mørketid. Indeed, while the length of the days and nights varies throughout the year for everyone but those living on the Equator, even during the darkest heart of winter, the Sun still rises each and every day…except in the Arctic!
With its beautiful frozen landscapes and the blazing Auroras crossing the skies, the Mørketid might simply be the most beautiful embodiment of what the Norwegian Arctic really is: a fragile land of beauty and bounty that will forever captivate the minds of southerners and northerners alike.
