Harstad is in the heart of North Norway, on Norway’s largest island – Hinnoya. The town is a strategic centre for the entire region and the business centre for Sor-Troms and northern Nordland County. It is called the Cultural Town in the North and offers an abundance of cultural activities all year long – and especially one week in June during the North Norwegian Festival of Culture (Festspillene i Nord-Norge). Then the town is characterised by a swarming street life and you can hear music in the pubs, churches and concert hall. A multicultural meeting in an exciting interaction in the Midnight Sun.
