There are many activities you can go on when the sun doesn’t entirely set, like you may have heard about Iceland, which has 24 hours of daylight. Picture a day without darkness, with the Sun still shining.

Why do icelands form late-night sun.

The Earth’s axis tilts towards the sun during the summer, which results in the midnight sun. Seasons are a result of the Earth’s axis’ tilt and its circling around the sun.

The Northern Hemisphere of the Earth tilts towards the sun from April to August of every year and away from the sun from September to March. Thus, June, July, and August in the Northern Hemisphere are considered summer months. In December, the Southern Hemisphere experiences summer that lasts from December through February. The Earth’s poles see the greatest contrast since they receive constant sunlight for six months and then spend the final six months in complete darkness.

As a result, the North Pole and the South Pole both experience true midnight sun, with six months of nonstop daylight. From late March to late September, the North Pole experiences constant illumination, whereas the South Pole experiences everlasting darkness.

How do you sleep during the sunlight?

Do not be discouraged if you must sleep in complete darkness! Thankfully, Icelanders use a brilliant device called “curtains” in all of their dwellings. Even vampires around the world prefer to use blackout curtains to block out any traces of sunlight.

Also fantastic for touring!

There is no need to stress about meeting deadlines, making it home on time, or going to bed “before it gets dark.”
With infinite days come countless opportunities for pursuits, gatherings, events, and exploration.
