Sortland, Norway, is located in the northern region of the country, on the island of Langøya, in the Vesterålen archipelago. Sometimes referred to as the “Blue City” because of its great number of blue-painted houses, Sortland is a small but beautiful town, with just over 10,000 inhabitants. Visitors should be prepared to witness the Midnight Sun here and the stunning Aurora Borealis. The Midnight Sun occurs from May 23rd to July 23rd and, between November and January, the sun remains below the horizon. This sets the stage for a spectacular natural phenomenon known as the Aurora Borealis, which colors the dark sky.
Sortland is also known as a cultural center for music and hosts an annual jazz festival. There is also plenty of indoor shopping opportunities in the area. If you are planning a visit, take a look at these top 10 recommended Airbnb vacation rentals in Sortland, Norway.
