CLIMATE

 

Tromsø has a very mild climate compared to other locations so far North. May is one of the driest months in a year. The temperatures will most likely stay above zero, in 2016 the day average was 7.7 degrees Celcius, and the temperature ranged from 1.2 to 21.7 degrees Celcius (Source: www.yr.no)

In the summertime the Sun does not set here from 19 May to 27 July. So during the festival there will be no night and the Sun will stay above the horizon for 24 hours a day. We call it the Midnight Sun...
