THE LAND OF MIDNIGHT SUN
Midnight sun in Greenland is practically a state of mind, and it makes the traditional concept of time lose all its meaning. You may as well leave your watch in your suitcase, because the day has neither a beginning nor an end.
Children on roller skates dash down the street in the middle of the night with the sun hanging low on the horizon. Small motorboats chug out of the harbour and groups of people sit dotted around the hills enjoying the never-ending rays of sunshine.
During the summer, small communities buzz with life until the early hours.
WHERE TO SEE THE MIDNIGHT SUN
So where and when is it best to see the midnight sun? Midnight sun can be experienced north of the Arctic Circle for a period lasting from a single day to five months, depending on how far north you travel.
In central Greenland the sun does not set from the end of May until the end of July. During this period, the soft, warm rays from the low-lying sun make the surrounding scenery appear almost dreamlike; icebergs and hilltops are bathed in a surreal palette of pink, purple, yellow and red.
