    Because it is located relatively close to the Arctic Circle.

    The Arctic Circle (latitude 66.6° N) and the nearby places, the Sun is circumpolar during the summer, which yields continuous 24 hours of sunlight and this phenomenon is called a midnight Sun. The places at farther north of the Arctic Circle (or the farther south of the Antarctic Circle) experience longer period of midnight Sun. Apart from Norway few locations in Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Russia and Finland also experience midnight sun.

    i think it is due to Norway's high latitude, there are large seasonal variations in daylight. from late May to late July, the sun never completely descends beneath the horizon in areas north of the Arctic Circle and the rest of the country experiences up to 20 hours of daylight per day. Conversely, from late November to late January, the sun never rises above the horizon in the north, and daylight hours are very short in the rest of the country.

    Well, even at mid night sun does not set at Western Norway. It does not mean the 24/7 is day in here, the night sun is as dim as moon not the disturb the the dark of the night. Bu the sun is sun, so Norway is known as the country of mid night sun.

    Norway is referred to as the land of the midnight sun due to the fact that the northern part of Norway is located above the Arctic Circle. This locale is known to receive sunlight 24 hours a day as from mid-May to mid-July.
