Celebrate Sankthansaften (Midsummer’s Eve) in Norway

Celebrate Sankthansaften – Norway from £1,292 pp with Sunvil Discovery

Sankthansaften (Midsummer’s Eve) is the cause of much celebration in Norway, with parties popping up all over the country to ring in the arrival of the longest day.

Ålesund is a rainbow-coloured Art Nouveau town at the heart of the fjords, which looks like it’s been tipped off the pages of a fairy story. Its community celebrates Midsummer by building a huge bonfire on the shores, and using this as the centre for a raucous party.

Departing 20 June, a seven-night stay at Hotel Brosundet, a charming remodelled warehouse, costs from £1,292 pp (two sharing) including B&B, flights (Gatwick) and car hire.
