Sun's Up in Midnight Sun Season


The sun is almost always up during Midnight Sun Season in Fairbanks, Alaska, where you can experience 24 hours of sunlight for 70 straight days. Cast away your clock, forget about time and immerse yourself in never-ending sunshine. Wake up in the middle of the night and go for a walk and watch the outlandishly large flowers and vegetables grow, float the Chena River, go for a bike ride or perhaps take in a round of golf. We invite you to the Land of the Midnight Sun where you can recharge, rejuvenate and rejoice in the everlasting light.
