Finland - Land of the Midnight Sun

Here in the far north, we have some exotic lighting effects. Around Midsummer in northern Finland, the sun does not set for several weeks. This may cause wakefulness, and a desire to stay out past your normal bedtime. In Utsjoki, for example, a single summer day lasts for over two months. Most people fall asleep long before the sun goes down.

A Finnish midsummer bonfire. This alone is worth the trip to Finland...the sun is up all night on this, the longest night of the year.
