Yukon is the land of the midnight sun, where skies are glorious and summer light just won't quit. Life flourishes under hours of intense sunlight as the land hosts millions of migratory birds and explodes in wildflower blooms. On summer solstice, June 21, the sun doesn't set at the Arctic Circle—the further north one travels, the higher the sun and the longer the season of the midnight sun. All over the Yukon, summer is a busy time of festivals and outdoor play. People often experience a surge of energy that comes with long light-filled days—come join in the fun!
