Arctic Circle marker
The invisible line
As we passed the point of the limit of the Arctic Circle on our Hurtigruten voyage we coukd see this otherwise invisible line marked on a globe on the small islet of Vikinge.
Latitude 66° 33’ marks the line of the Arctic Circle, north of which the Midnight Sun shines. Above this line, you can see the sun 24 hours a day throughout the summer, and no sun at all in the winter.
Of course sun isn’t guaranteed, but daylight is. I’ll share some photos soon taken at midnight the following night! Meanwhile I’m simply marking this crossing of the special line.
