In the Artic Circle

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

As you might know, Lofoten is lying within the Artic Circle, an area that I always thought to be too friggin’ cold to go to, ever, period! 😉 Later I learned that this circle of latitude has not so much to do with the cold, but all with the fact that it marks the southern border where the phenomena ‘polar day‘ (24-hour sunlit day, aka “midnight sun”) and ‘polar night‘ (24-hour sunless night) occur at least once a year.

It’s my my first time this far ‘up North’ which is exciting in itself and the amazing nature of Lofoten makes everything even more special, see the pictures below!

The special thing about this last picture is the time it was taken; 2am last night!!
