Summer in the north

Land of the Never Setting Sun

To spend midsummer in the northern part of Sweden is actually something pretty spectacular, even for a born and raised swede like myself. Kalix (one hour drive north of Luleå) is located right below the polar circle, which means that in the summer the sun never really sets, and vice verse. The whole night is nothing but a long sunset, with the sun only dipping its feet in the horizon before its time to rise again.

Check out some photos from the trip here.
