Travel Photo of the Day: Icelandic Midnight Sun

Share this with your friends

Have you heard about the infamous midnight sun of Iceland where the sun never fully sets?

This happens around summer between May and August with its peak around June 21. You can see this phenomenon from anywhere in Iceland. Iceland, along with other countries north of the Arctic Circle like Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Alaska, experience this phenomenon.

For historical reasons, the summer solstice is also usually celebrated on Jonsmessunott on June 24 annually, or the Nativity of John the Baptist. A lot of local stories/lore are associated with that date, one of them is the belief that cows can talk and that rolling around naked in the morning dew can cure ailments.
