The Swedish midnight sun Posted by Katja on Jun 15, 2010 in Geography
Most of you have heard of the famous midnight sun. Well it’s as wonderful as people say. And takes some getting used to every year. In the areas where you get to experience the midnight sun you also have the really long winter, and the really short hours of daylight. In the spring when all the snow is melting the days get longer and longer you can wake up all of a sudden and realize that it isn’t dark even though it is in the middle of the night.
Many a time I have been at friends houses and looked out the window thinking “it’s only nine PM” when actually it was one or two AM. It is truly a wonderful experience to cycle home at two in the morning and there isn’t a soul outside when it could just as well have been two in the afternoon when it comes to the light.
Sweden is sometimes even referred to as the “land of the midnight sun”. What have you heard about the midnight sun of the north?
Is it a lifelong dream to see it?
