Travelling here during June, during the interval of near-24 hour sun, is the only time roads are accessible for mortals. The area is remarkably warm, temperate, during June, but mosquito repellant and coils are vital. We arranged no lodging in advance, but found many marvelous wood cabins for reasonable rates in which to stay, and many such places have a... More

The tour above the arctic circle came through slovaer whilst we were there. The town came alive with colourful cyclists and their teams. Hundreds of people came out of their houses to cheers them on all around the Lofoten Islands. Waving flags and enjoying the sunshine.

We crossed the Arctic Circle on the Hurtigruten's MS Nordlys and enjoyed the ceremony where King Neptune ladles icecubes down your back before you get a drink of warming grog. And then there's the certificate that appears outside your cabin to prove you've been there. That was northbound: on the way south it's cod-liver oil, more grog and a souvenir... More

I did the arctic circle route from Mo i rana to the arctic circle in sweden. I visit the centre for about 1 hour, there is a tourist shop and a restaurant, and amazing views. The trip was beautiful stunning views.

I love Norway. You have to see it for yourself, it is a awesome country. The Norwegian people are very friendly, the Sami people who were the early settlers have a very rich and interesting history. The life style and culture is really interesting, the Viking history is awesome, the buildings of the past are beautiful kept. the animals are... More

The arctic road in Norway has a sign post as you cross the arctic circle. Very close to the road is also The Arctic Centre which is worth a visit in case you have time. The feeling when you cross the circle is out of the world or should i say more like feeling on top of the world.

Well, you have crossed it. There is no line on the water or monument to see. It's just as exciting as crossing the equator or any point of latitude. But you can say that you have done it, that gives you bragging rights.

Exciting to cross the Arctic Circle and experience the Land of the Midnight Sun in July, especially by cruise ship.

My wife and I recently spent three weeks touring Norway by car, train and ship. First, the landscape and scenery are wonderful and spectacular. We started in Oslo, drove to Alesund, Kristiansund and Trondheim. We took the train to Bodo and then--because of the airport security guards strike--drove from Bodo to Kirkenes through Samiland in Norway, Sweden and Finland. We... More
