where to take my solstice vacation

Jump to last reply

during the winter, some people get SAD(seasonal affective disorder), but not me. i seem to have the opposite disorder(if there is such a thing). i've always been sensitive to the sun. i sunburn easily, and a bright sunny day the visual equivalent of a really loud person that's always in your face, and just won't shut up.

i've heard that during the winter solstice, alaska has about a month where the sun never rises. that sounds like paradise...
except that it's winter... in alaska...
i already live in minnesota, where it's winter for six months out of the year.
taking a vacation from my -20 degree surroundings to go to an area that gets to -30 or colder would be less than ideal...
i've looked into winter solstice in iceland. it seems to stay right around freezing there, but unfortunately, it's not completely dark.

so this is my question;
is there anywhere in the world where i could completely avoid the sun, but not have to deal with ridiculously cold temperatures?
in the southern hemisphere, the seasons are reversed, so does that mean that if i go toward the south pole during the summer solstice, there would be a similar situation?

i've tried some google searches, but it seems like most people are looking for the opposite of what i want, hence, information seems to be a little difficult to find.

any ideas or information anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
