Experiencing the midnight sun is one of the most amazing things everyone should add to their bucket list! This natural phenomenon occurs during the summer months in the countries near the Arctic Circle and offers never-ending daylight and mesmerizing views.

In the six countries listed below, the day never ends in summer as the sun remains above the horizon throughout the night for different time periods (about 60 days). From May to July you can experience up to 24 hours of daylight in places north of the Arctic Circle, so you’ll have more time for great adventures and things to do. In some inhabited regions, like Svalbard in Norway, the sun never sets all night from April to August, while in populated areas it is visible for about 20 hours a day, but it still doesn’t get dark at night.
