Grótta Island Lighthouse
From May through July, the midnight sun shines bright with up to 22 hours of daylight and never-ending sunsets. This setting of the midnight sun is one of nature’s most magnificent events, a surreal light show that sets the skies ablaze in spectacular shades of gold and pink. One of the best places to see it is from the lighthouse at Grótta—but be aware of high tide times, or you may find yourself swimming home.
