5 Natural Phenomena and Unbelievable Places in Norway
I’m the tides which will take you from both the sides. I will pull and push you in my trance from the force of the moon and sun which shines high. I’ll make your heart numb like an anchor of the ship in the sea. You’ll be surrendered by my whirlpools which will make you forever sleep.
Saltsraumen Maelstrom located in the Nordland is one the most interesting and mind blowing of all places in Norway. These whirlpools ain’t just normal whirlpools. These are the strongest whirlpools in the world. So strong and large that they can swallow boats in just a fraction of seconds. More than mystical and legendary this sight is deadly but believe me, it’s still an impressive sight to see. Vortices up to 10 meters in diameter and 5 meters deep are formed when the current is at strongest. Just imagine 5 meters deep whirlpools drilling in the sea. This phenomenon happens twice a day for around an hour and can be best viewed from the bridge above it.
2.The Midnight Sun
I’m the source of light which will never let you sleep. Whether it’s 11 pm or 12:30 am in the morning. I’ll keep your eyes wide open until I sleep. Summers will be hard for you if you plan to stay with me because I’ll be up in the sky for 24 hours watching you whilst you are only ‘day dreaming?’
The northern part of Norway above the Arctic Circle is a place where the sun shines 24 hours a day i.e from mid-may to mid-July. On the other hand, in winter months just the opposite happens. This natural phenomenon of Sun can also be visible from 50 miles away from places in Norway from the Arctic circle. But the sun isn’t that high and prominent from so far.

I’m one of the most accessible glaciers which you can hear cracking and moving.My hues can be seen melting into the clearest blue turquoise water. You can hike over me wearing crampons to make yourself feel relieved or else you never know when you slip.
