THE NORTHERN LIGHTS AND THE MIDNIGHT SUN
The sun has a sunrise in mid-May, before she is waiting for the next sunset in end July.
Living under the midnight sun is an experience in itself.
You can experience it from Mid may to End July.
And in mid-November, the sun takes its last sunset this year and then we see her again around the New Year once.
Many call this time "the time of darkness". But we do not know if the northern lights, the stars and the moon agree. Nor the eternal blue hour of the day. It is a good time to see the northern lights from September to March. Gjesvær is a unique place to experience both the northern lights and the blue hour. We are surrounded by sea and plateau, and there is little electric light from our cormorant hundred permanent residents.
These experiences can be enjoyed on the terrace - with the coffee cup or wine glass in hand - completely free. No guides. No hikes. No stress. No nothing. Just the lights and you.
