Seasons and climate

Considering its location in a subarctic climate, Nordkyn has a surprisingly mild climate.

The Gulf Stream contribute to stabilize the temperatures both during summer and winter.

Winter lasts from November to late April, but temperatures rarely fall much below zero.

Between November and January, the Polar Night falls. In this period of time, the sun does not rise above the horizon.

From the start of April, the sun never sets, creating a beautiful glowing effect. Read more about the midnight sun.
