Last night MS «Sjølyst» crossed the Arctic Circle heading South.
Thus the sun again will dip below the horizon after gracing us with its presence 24 hours a day since our departure from Vadsø June 21st.
Above you can catch four minutes of sunny highlights from our ten nights in Northern Norway above the Arctic Circle.
We will keep the magic moments of the North Cape, Sommarøy, Vesterålen and Lofoten in our hearts for ever.
