When the midnight sun is shining with yellow, orange and red colours over the fjord and surrounding mountains, we can only descripe it as breath-taking, and certainly puts Narvik on the map for places to experience the midnight sun.
The phenomenon occurs because the midnight sun never sets below the horizon at it's lowest position during a day. And because the sun never sets, the daylight never goes away. Since the earth is tilted in its axis, and the earth orbits around the sun, that tilt makes the North Pole face towards the sun in the summer, keeping it sunlight even as the earth spins
During the midnight sun season locals tend to take advantage of the light nights. People of Narvik go on hiking in the late evening or even during the nights. Fishing in the lakes or from the pier throughout the long summer nights is just the best recreation ever. With daylight 24/7 and on those great midnight sun nights you have plenty of time to experience the great outdoor in the Arctic Narvik region.
