If you live in Munich or London, you can travel non-stop to experience the Polar night coming winter. Tour operators 68° Lofoten og Discover Arctic are behind this initiative and their goal is to offer German and British tourists an extraordinary travel experience.
Evenes Airport is one of the main airports of Northern Norway. It serves the cities of Harstad and Narvik, as well as parts of the Lofoten and Vesterålen archipelagos. Usually travelers to Evenes, as well as the rest of Northern Norway will have to change to northbound domestic flights at Oslo airport, but coming winter travelers may fly directly into their polar night experience.
