See the sun that never sets. And the day that never ends! This phenomenon has been inspiring and captivating people for centuries and is like a sunset and sunrise all at once! Experience the amazing array of colours that fill the sky and the magic of planet earth. Bentours is thrilled to launch Follow the Midnight Sun, a small group tour designed to witness the magic of the midnight sun at the northernmost point of Europe.
This twelve day tour captures the very best that Scandinavia has to offer in the luminous summer months, beginning in the southern Finnish capital Helsinki, before boarding the train to Rovaniemi in the heart of Lapland. From there, travel north until arriving in Honningsvag, the nearest point to the North Cape at 71° 10’ 21” N, only 2,000 kilometers from the Geographical North Pole, and witness the midnight sun; a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months when the sun remains visible at midnight. Then marvel at Norway’s picturesque fjords on a five night cruise from Kirkenes, south to Bergen.
