Life Under the Arctic Sky

Two hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, near the jagged tips of Norway’s crown, the sun does not set for weeks on end during the summer months, and the midnight sun bounces off fields of midsummer snow. Explore the world of the Sami people including their relationship with their reindeer and the sun throughout the year.

Experience the Northern Lights, or aurora borealis. This natural light display in the sky, especially in the high latitude regions, is caused by the collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles with the high altitude atmosphere.
