European countries, Finland and Sweden, are part of the six countries where the sun never sets for a particular period of time.

These countries experiences sunshine for months and some also experience darkness for some consecutive days.

According to India Times, these are the places where the sun never sets:

Sweden
Constant sunshine may occur for up to six months in a year in the country. From early May until the end of August, the sun sets at midnight and by 4 am, it rises again.

Finland
During summertime, most parts of Finland never experience a sun set for straight 73 days. However, in winter time, no sunlight is seen in the region.

As a result, people in those areas sleep more during the winter and less in summer, due to the constant sunlight.

Norway
Also known as the Land of the Midnight Sun, Norway, for a period of 76 days never experiences sunset.

That period is from May until the end of July, where there is constant sunlight. The city of Svalbard in the country experiences constant sunshine from April 10 to August 23.

Nunavut, Canada
Nunavut is in the Northwest region of Canada and experiences about two months of uninterrupted sunlight.

In winter, however, the region sees total darkness for 30 consecutive days.

Iceland
Asides from its popularity as the country without mosquitoes, Iceland also experiences very bright nights during summer. Also, in the month of June, the sun actually never sets.

Barrow, Alaska
The sun does not set in this region from late May until late July night. Interestingly, from early November, the sun does not rise for 30 consecutive days.

This period without sun rise is known as the polar night. As a result, winter time brings absolute darkness to the country. – Agency report.
