In this way, what months are dark in Norway?
Located over 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø, Norway, is home to extreme light variation between seasons. During the Polar Night, which lasts from November to January, the sun doesn't rise at all. Then the days get progressively longer until the Midnight Sun period, from May to July, when it never sets.
Furthermore, does Norway have 24 hours of darkness? Remember, a Polar Night is only when the sun doesn't rise for more than 24 hours. In fact, the length of the Polar Night period depends on where you are in Northern Norway. The further north you go, the longer the period will last.
Also asked, how long does it stay dark in Norway?
A portion of Norway extends above the Arctic circle which would have 24 hour darkness during part of the winter, and 24 hour daylight during part of the summer. The days would hit about 12 hours on the spring and fall equinoxes.
Why does it not get dark in Norway?
Winter darkness means that there is no real daylight (a weak twilight at noon at best), there is no sun at all. Because of this, the northern light can be observed most of the day. The further north, the longer and darker the polar night.
