Alaska’s midnight sun has been warming visitors’ hearts for centuries. Have you ever snapped a picture of the sunset…at 11:59 PM? Or attended a baseball game that began at 10:30 PM (hint: you can see in Fairbanks). Or what about hiking to the top of Flattop in Anchorage with the locals on a sunny evening to catch views of Cook Inlet? You’ll be amazed how much more of Alaska you can see when the sun never sets.
Alaska’s midnight sun changes more than our circadian rhythms. Travel to the Arctic Circle on a bus or take a flightseeing tour out of Fairbanks. Discover how local Alaskan lifestyles change when the sun doesn’t set until midnight. Just make sure to bring your sunglasses!
