The land of the Midnight Sun

June 21st.

A number of people in Iceland celebrate the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, by walking and hiking. We set to climb the Spákonufell Mountain at 10 in the night reaching the top just in time for the midnight sun. It is quite an eerie feeling to reach a summit at midnight in full daylight.

Striking midnight.
