Scandanavia: Venture north of the Arctic Circle
Between early June and mid-July the sun doesn’t set here—a phenomenon known as the midnight sun. Some of the prettiest places to take in this phenomenon are Bodo, Narvik, and Nordkapp in Norway; or while skiing the King’s Trail in northern Sweden. Equally moving (though in a less gleeful way) is the reverse experience at the height of winter, when the Arctic goes completely dark for a few months.

You don't ski the King's Trail during summer, you hike.
Bodø and Narvik are quite ordinary cities in north Norway.
Tromsø is a good city in northern Norway to visit during summer. Even better is to visit the Lofoten islands and places like Svolvær.
