You can read about it, see pictures of it, imagine it, but nothing will truly prepare you for the midnight light! Paddle. Hike. Camp. At three o’clock in the morning you’ll be smiling as the sun still shines in the arctic night. Don’t forget to set the time in the camera and take a picture! Otherwise, who will believe you?
