Experience 96 Hours Of Straight Sunlight, Luxuries Of A Private Jet And Party Inside A Glacier


The Nordic island country of Iceland boasts dramatic and contrasting landscapes where fire and ice co-exist. Home to glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs and national parks, Iceland will leave you enchanted with its magic.

Apart from offering varied landscapes to witness, Iceland also lets you witness many natural phenomena such as Aurora Borealis, the Blue Lagoon, geysers, and lava fields to name a few. Another such phenomena is midnight sun or summer solstice. To brush up your geography, summer solstice is the longest day of the year occuring on June 21, due to the Earth's maximum incline towards the sun. As a consequence, days in the Northern Hemisphere get longer.

Without digressing much, let's dive into how you can celebrate 96 hours of sunlight in the best way possible.
