See the spectacular Midnight Sun . Midnight Sun is when the sun never sets in the summer. The Midnight Sun is a 24-hour period of sunlight that can be experienced above the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland. Midnight Sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months and means that the sun can be seen even in the middle of the night. The Midnight Sun experience in Sweden might mess with your head for the first few days after you arrive, so pack a sleeping mask if you want to get some shut-eye. Even the people who live in Swedish Lapland have problems sleeping and blackout curtains are a big seller. The best advice is to simply succumb to the light and bedazzled into staying vertical for as long as you can to enjoy this unique part of the world. Slow down and enjoy the never-ending summer days. You can sleep when you get home.
