Alaska receives more sunlight than most countries on the planet. Due to it being so far north, the sun never truly sets for most of the year. In fact, even at 12:00 AM, you can still see the sun beaming its rays into your home. That’s why you need to buy blackout curtains, folks!
If you want to get a perfect view of the midnight sun, you can take one of the tour buses from Fairbanks and head north past the Arctic Circle. If you have some strength in your legs, consider scaling the 3,000-plus-foot Eagle Summit to capture the perfect silhouette of you and your partner with the midnight sun in the background.
