8 Places on Earth Where the Sun Never Sets | Midnight Sun Countries

There are several places on Earth where the sun never sets, also known as the "Land of the Midnight Sun." These are located in the polar regions, where the sun remains above the horizon for at least 24 hours during the summer solstice. Here are eight countries where you can experience the phenomenon of the Midnight Sun

"8 Places on Earth Where the Sun Never Sets | Midnight Sun Countries," the speaker explores Russia and Finland, Norway and Iceland, and Greenland, Barrow (Alaska), and Canada's Nunavut as destinations where the sun doesn't set or rises for extended periods. In Russia and Finland, the sun shines for up to two months straight during summer but disappears for about 40-50 days in winter. Norway, the eighth most prosperous country, and Iceland, the largest European island, offer 24 hours of sun during summer and beautiful starry nights. Greenland, politically part of Europe, experiences 24 hours of sun during summer and six months of darkness. Barrow in Alaska and Nunavut in Canada have 24 hours of sun during summer but complete darkness for about a month during winter. These countries are popular for those who love the extremes of nature and offer unique weather conditions.
