North Norway or Nord-Noreg, is the geographical region of northern Norway, consisting of the three counties Nordland, Troms and Finnmark, in total about 35% of the Norwegian mainland. Some of the largest towns in North Norway (from south to north) are Mo i Rana, Bodø, Narvik, Harstad, Tromsø  and Alta. North Norway is often described as the land of the midnight sun and the land of the northern lights.

The region is multi-cultural – housing not just Norwegians – but also the indigenous Sami people, the Norwegian Finns (known as Kvens) and Russian populations (mostly in Kirkenes). The Norwegian language dominates in most of the area; Sami-speakers are mainly found inland and in some of the fjord areas of Nordland, Troms and particularly Finnmark - though ethnic Sámi who do not speak the language are found more or less everywhere in the region. Finnish is spoken in only a few communities in the east of Finnmark.
