Midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight.
Tap route for metrics
The cycle along the west coast of Senja offers a journey through changing landscapes. The steep mountains plunging straight into the ocean are a breathtaking sight, and the most prominent feature on this route. The road twists and turns along deep fjords and through villages that cling to the narrow stripe between mountains and sea.
