5 Places to See Midnight Sun this Summer

Want more sun in your life? It may seem counter-intuitive, but to see the most sun this summer, head as close to the North Pole as you can get!

The “Midnight Sun” is a natural phenomenon that occurs near the Arctic Circle in the summer months, when the tilt of the Earth places the Arctic Circle within reach of the sun’s light for the planet’s entire 24-hour rotation. Depending on how far north you go, the sun can stay up without setting for more than four months!
