The season of eternal sunshine
There is perpetual daylight along the entire coastline and endless days north of the Arctic Circle, thanks to the midnight sun. Many people say they get so much extra energy from the surplus light that they find it hard to go to bed. If you’re one of them, we offer an array of optional activities so you’ll never run out of things to do.
Staying active in Norwegian nature
Excursion options on your voyage include exhilarating boat rides, sea eagle safaris, sea and river kayaking, and hikes across mountain valleys, sandy beaches and lofty alpine peaks. Watch in awe as cascading waterfalls deliver winter’s snowmelt into the sea, right next to the blooming flowers of hillsides and valleys. See all excursions.
Season of celebration
Summer is also the high season for festivities. Join the fun and help Norwegians celebrate their Constitution Day, 17 May, when coastal communities become a kaleidoscope of colourful parades, music and tradition.
Sankthans, or Saint John’s Eve, 23 June, is another special Norwegian occasion observing both the birth of Saint John the Baptist and the summer solstice. Huge bonfires lit after the sun sets, or sinks low on the horizon, can be seen burning up and down the coast into the small hours of the morning.
