Iceland is one of the most popular European countries for tourists at the moment, and this video is only one reason why people are flocking to get to the island nation.

Given Iceland’s super high latitude (Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital), during summer months, the Sun doesn’t set until very late at night, and it can rise very shortly thereafter. The result is what feels like 24 hours of daylight, occurring right around the summer solstice in June.

This beautiful video captures what’s known as the midnight Sun, when there’s daylight all night long. So cool.
