 6 places on earth where the sun never sets!

Our daily routine revolves around 24 hours, with about 12 hours of sunlight, and the remaining hours being at night. But, do you know that there are places around the world where the sun does not set for more than 70 days. Imagine how interesting it would be for tourists to keep track of time, when even the locals there get confused by not having sunset for 70 days straight. If you're interested to know more, here are 6 places on Earth where the sun never sets.

1: NORWAY.


Norway, located in the Arctic Circle, is called the Land of the Midnight Sun, where the sun never really sets from late May to July. This means that the sun never sets for about 76 days. In Svalbard, Norway, the sun shines continuously from April 10 to August 23; It is also the northernmost inhabited region in Europe. You can plan a visit to this place during this time and live for the days when there is no night.
