Here are a few more. With its location near the Arctic Circle, there are places where the sun doesn’t complete set for weeks at a time. The sun will get low on the horizon though, which means you can find a beach, grab a bottle of your favorite wine, and enjoy watching a sunset for 3+ hours evening after evening.
