Strolling in the Land of the Midnight Sun
The beauty of a late-night walk in a Northern European summer is that you can stay out as late as you want and not worry about looking over your shoulder. From strolling through city centers and old towns to taking guided walks and hikes, here are ways you can enjoy Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm, St. Petersburg, and Reykjavik late into the evening.

Midnight Sun

Large arrow left

While in Helsinki, we visited the island sea fortress at Suomenlinna. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Helsinki Harbour and a perfect place to enjoy the midnight sun. This picture was taken around midnight.

The fortress was a great place to visit and get out of the noisy city but still be in the city in a parklike setting. The short ferry ride to the islands is also a fun excursion and a way see the city from the water....highly recommended.
