Outdoors !: "See the Midnight Sun" Top 5 Page for this destination Antarctica Nightlife Tip by tiabunna

Antarctica Nightlife: 40 reviews and 44 photos

  Midnight Sun (night of midsummer's day)
by tiabunna

Most residents of the mid-latitudes have never seen the 'midnight sun'. But it is simple to do if you're at the right place (and at the right time!). Head south to the Antarctic Circle at midsummer's day (21 December), settle back and enjoy the evening and, weather permitting, as midnight passes you can watch the sun doing a lazy sweep along the horizon to the south. The further south you go, the longer the phonomena is visible, till when you reach the geographic pole, the sun remains visible between the equinoxes in March and September.

Dress Code: Warm.

Address: Antarctica
Directions: South of the Antarctic Circle at midsummer: over a more extended period if you go further south.
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
