Midnight Sun

Although many travelers have experienced the midnight sun in northern Norway or Canada, experiencing the phenomenon at the north of Svalbard is an entirely different ball game. Not only does the sun stay above the horizon from mid-April until late August—in June and early July, it barely moves from its position high in the sky throughout the so-called nights. The initial novelty of the endless days wears off pretty quickly, as constant sunlight wreaks havoc on the circadian rhythms that regulate the body's sleep patterns.
