The Arctic light and nature in Northern Norway are filled with strong contrasts that provide intense experiences. Tromsø, the home of the Midnight Sun Marathon, is situated at 69 degrees north, 350 km above the Arctic circle. During the winter the Polar Night encloses the city and the sun never rises above the horizon. During this time there are only a few hours of the characteristic blue daylight. During the summer, when the Polar Day takes over, it is the contrary and the sun shines day and night. The endless, bright days make you never want to sleep…..
