You are evidently enjoying the long, lovely summer days in Norway, now that the sun is as its highest – based on the wonderful photo’s you’ve shared with us in recent days.
We could have stared at this picture for hours. It’s beautiful, summery, honest – and full of fascinating details. We can just about feel the fresh sea air at Flø at Sunnmøre, at Norway’s west coast, where the pictures are taken – from a drone. Congrats to photographer Carl-Åge Henriksen on a stunning photo, and thanks for letting us share it!
This week saw the longest day of the year, with the solstice at Tuesday 21 June, at 00.34. There are obviously many who have been outdoors to enjoy it – and taken many wonderful photos. Here are the rest of the week’s top five.
We can imagine that it was a lovely hike up to Lidaveten to capture this scene. The peak stands 592 meters above sea level at Ørsta in Western Norway. Thanks to Per-Arild Kile for a wonderful summery picture.
Nidelven is not one of Norway’s best trout rivers, Grete Øiamo points out – it is also very photogenic. That sunset helps, too. Øiamo took the picture at approximately 23.30 this week in Klæbu, south of Trondheim.
Norway is large. Far larger than most people realise. We recommend focusing on one region at a time, and coming back to see the rest later. If you only plan one trip to Norway, take your time as you travel; make the journey itself your destination.
The days are long and bright in Norway now, and that means we'll se more great pictures from the evening and midnight sun. Here are the top five picks of the week from our community.
