The Day That Never Ends:
The midnight sun is sort of a prolonged sunset and sunrise all at once.
Our Earth rotates at a tilted axis to the sun and during the summers the North Pole is angled towards the sun which is why for several weeks the sun never sets above the Arctic Circle and vice versa for the Southern Hemisphere below the Antarctic Circle.
If you want a taste of the midnight sun you will have to travel to the Arctic where it doesn't set between April to late August. Going there you can literally see and feel the nature and wildlife in a different light. Nights could be chilly but you could go sea kayaking to enjoy the sky in a reddish yellow light or perhaps consider midnight diving to experience the Arctic marine life and see some seals, walruses, whales or even polar bears underwater, you could even pitch your tent and stay up while the sun doesn't go down. I've done a few midnight walks on glaciers in Svalbard and the light reflecting off of the ice is... Well no words can describe the emotion there.
An excerpt from a Norwegian poem I think, "Night was coming on again; the sun dipped into the sea and rose again, red and refreshed, as if it had been down to drink!"
