Midnight Sun in Amazing Ålesund
Yes, You can experience the whole sun night, and I was lucky to be that time of the year to see the sun also 12 in the night. I was watching sunset 12 in the night, and then it stays there the whole night like its time for evening, but it never goes down.
Honestly saying that this experience is very different and you get confused with the time because after 7 or 8 you are used to night time with the moon, and when you see 10 in the night and feel like 4 in the afternoon, your mind doesn’t expect it.
