So you want to see the midnight sun? Well, contrary to belief, you cannot see it all over Sweden even if the summer nights ARE bright in Stockholm too compared to Paris - but just go further south to Malmö and it is a lot darker already.

It gets lighter the further north you travel but for the real midnight sun you need to be around the Arctic Circle which is just a tiny bit of Sweden. Some areas just south of it also benefit from the sun for a few weeks. Check this link out. It tells you just where you want to be at a certain date. The red line is the Arctic Circle.
