Land of the Midnight Sun

From late May to late July the sun never completely descends beneath the horizon in areas north of the Arctic Circle - hence Norway being known as the "Land of the Midnight Sun".

The archepilago Svalbard (constituting the northernmost part of Norway) is above the Arctic Circle and therefore benefits from the Midnight Sun during the summer. This means 24 hours of sunlight to experience this unique landscape from April to late August.
