In Northern Norway, pure magic awaits in the form of spectacular scenery, culture and natural wonders like the midnight sun and the northern lights. Get ready for a trip to the kingdom of light!
As the largest part of the mainland, Northern Norway stretches from the Helgeland coast in the south to Europe’s northernmost point near the North Cape. It also includes the Svalbard Islands, located halfway between Norway and the North Pole. The region boasts wild and untouched nature, Arctic animals, whales, and world-class seafood.
You’ll find several fishing villages here too, with colourful fishermen’s cabins called “rorbuer.” Experience the coastal culture on a fishing trip, by driving along the scenic route Kystriksveien or on a cruise with the coastal express Hurtigruten. Maybe go island hopping? You can even explore the most remote areas of Northern Norway with public transportation!
Another important part of the history and the culture in the region is the Sami – the country’s indigenous people. The attractions on the Norwegian tundra in Finnmark reflect their history, heritage and life today.
