  12:00am Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, United Kingdom
The 70 or so Orkney Islands lie at the north west tip of Scotland, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the North Sea. Kirkwall, the capital of the archipelago, is a Viking town founded in 1035 by Earl Rognvald Brusason. You'll find that the original ancient Norse town has been beautifully preserved and provides an intriguing place to while away your time.

  12:00am Trondheim, Norway
Norway's Trondheim is considered the gateway to the north and the cradle of national patriotism. Classic wooden townhouses of the 19th century and terraced flats provide for one of the most distinctive towns in Scandinavia. A long-established centre of Christian pilgrimage, Trondheim is an urban centre of cultural activities filled with historical sites, museums and art galleries.

  12:00am Tromso, Norway
The most northern of Norway's rugged islands, Tromso possesses the true wonders of the polar environment: glistening glacial ridges, the icy clear waters of Lake Prestvatn, even windswept valleys where reindeer roam free. Amidst the beauty, there is fascinating history to be found as well, from ancient northern settlements to signs of sacrificial sites and cults that pre-date Christianity.

  12:00am Honningsvaag, Norway
Honningsvag is your gateway to Norway's North Cape on Mageroya Island. This is the northernmost point in Europe, and the true land of the midnight sun. From mid-May to July, the full disc of the sun never dips below the horizon. In winter, the days barely lighten to a spectral gloom. To the north lies only the remote Svalbard Archipelago, Jan Mayan Island, and the polar ice cap. From the cliffs of North Cape, perched 1,000 feet above the Arctic Ocean, one stares into the arctic silence.

  12:00am Archangel, Russia
Based in northern Russia, Arkhangelsk, or Archangel as its known, suffers from chilling winters. A good place to visit is the Lutheron Kirk of Saint Catherine. Built in 1768 this fabulous structure has had the bad luck to be involved in four fires, but the good luck to survive all of them. Archangel is also home to several museums covering art, history and architecture.

  12:00am Murmansk, Russia
Located on Kola Bay, Murmansk enjoys two unique distinctions. It is Russia's sole ice-free port and it is the only city found north of the Arctic Circle. While Russia occupied the Kola Peninsula as early as the 17th century, Murmansk itself dates to the last years of the Tsarist Empire. The city was founded on October 4, 1916, as the administrative centre of the Kola Peninsula. Murmansk remains a vital strategic centre in the 21st century.

  12:00am Sortland, Vesteralen Is, Norway
Since a lot of houses in the town are painted blue, Sortland is sometimes referred to as "the blue city". The Midnight Sun occurs from May 23 to July 23. Great places to observe the Midnight Sun includes the Sortland Bridge, Ramnflauget, Godfjorden, Holm and Skytterhaugen in the Vestmarka residential area. Because of Sortland's high latitude, there is no real darkness between late April and mid-August. From November 30 to January 12 the sun remains below the horizon and is not visible. The return of the sun is an occasion for celebration. The Polar Night does not mean that it becomes totally dark. The experience of the winter with the uniqueness of the light, the northern lights and snow is fantastic. Especially beautiful is the blue light southwards where the sky can also be coloured in pink, just before it becomes dark.

  12:00am Bergen, Norway
Bergen is called the "Gateway to the Fjords," as it is a great launching point for a tour of nature's Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Geirangerfjord. This city has a wonderful mix of architectural styles that add to its 18th-century charm. And as birthplace of virtuoso violinist Ole Bull and pianist Edvard Grieg, Bergen is considered the cultural capital of Norway.
