Happy New Year to all first-time and regular Northern Norway visitors!
The first big event – Mørketidsløpet or PolarNight Halvmarathon – was a great success. On saturday the 3rd of January over 1200 runners from over 31 countries took part in this unforgettable experience. It was snowing during the race but in the evening the sky cleared and visitors could see the Northern Lights – 2 in 1 so to say.
The next big events are theArctic Frontiers conference, 19.-23.1. with many politicians discussing at UiT – but hopefully also a bit of time to enjo our fantastic winter landscape and not to forget: the day the sun will appear over the horizon – mark the date: 21.1. and celebrate with us the return of the sun.
A few weeks later, is Sami Week here in Tromsø, where we expect also many tourists. 6.2. is the day of the Sami, i.e. their national day.
Enjoy your stay here in Northern Norway
