Norway is called the land of the Midnight Sun. This is because in this country sun never descends completely below the horizon for around about 6 months a year. This yields 24 hours of continuous sunlight. From late May to late July, the sun never completely descends beneath the horizon in areas north of theArctic Circle and the rest of the part of country goes through up to 20 hours of daylight per day.

The extreme sites on the earth are the poles, where sun remains continuously visible for approximately half of the year. This means that on these poles, sun only rises and rises once in a year. Norway is located close to the polar area on the north and that is why it experiences 6 months day and 6 months night. Due to itsmidnightsun, tourist love to visit this country. Mostly people like to play golf inmidnightsun. Another favorite activity of the visitors and locals is the fishing. It’s a quite a novel experience to go for fishing in middle of the night.
