Midsummer in Lapland

Midsummer day here was Friday 25th June (but for reasons I do not understand, the date changes every year) so on Thursday evening we went to the top of Dundret, a 747 metre mountain just outside Gällivare.

The landscape here is very different with not many trees and some alpine plant species.

Our destination for the evening, like many other people, was “Top Stugan”

where we could sit and talk, drink coffee, eat waffles and toasted sandwiches, with beautiful views around;

view-3

but what we were all waiting for, was to view the midnight sun
