Happy Summer Solstice



The summer solstice is when the tilt of the planet is most in line with the sun in the northern hemisphere. It signifies the day with the longest amount of sunshine.

Want to play a round of Midnight Golf? You could play in the Arctic Open – an international golf tournament hosted in Akureyri.


In the northern city of Akureyri, the sun never goes below the horizon the entire day.

The sun just sinks down in the sky low enough to kiss the horizon before it rises back up again in the sky sporting the beautiful hues of red and gold
