“Through our ‘MOREtime’ project, we aim to celebrate and promote this unique way of life, offering individuals the opportunity to enjoy more quality time engaging in activities such as fishing, hunting, learning new languages, or simply being with loved ones,” Vadsø said in a letter.

“What is the good thing about living here? It’s the time,” she told POLITICO.

“We don’t run after the buses or after the trains or have to take a long time to travel to work and so on,” she added. “We are very satisfied with living in a part of Norway where we have more time to be with our friends, with our family and together.”

By extending the length of the days, Pedersen hopes that more people will be inspired to move to the remote region. Ensuring that the area is populated is “more important than ever” in light of Russia’s war against Ukraine, Pedersen added.

“We like our lifestyle and we think that could be very exciting, especially for families with small children,” the mayor said. “I think it’s a more calm and better everyday life than for example in a big city.”

Could it actually happen?
