Best Places to Travel to in June #6: Sweden

One of the most exciting times of the year in Scandinavia is in June, and that's for summer solstice. While many countries are excited to celebrate the longest day of the year (the 21st of June), it is particularly special in the Nordic countries.

Did you know that the countries in the Arctic actually see almost 24 hours of daylight in the summer and almost 24 hours of darkness in the winter? We had the pleasure of cruising through the Baltics in the summertime, and it truly is outstanding to witness.

Each year Sweden celebrates Summer Solstice with its huge Midsommer Festival. This is where everyone dresses in white, wears flower crowns, and dances around the maypole. It's a joyous occasion, and definitely makes Sweden one of the best places to visit in June.

Best Places to Travel to in June #7: Wiltshire, England

Come June, England becomes much more pleasant weather wise. But that's not the main reason to come here in June. Wiltshire brings more than 10,000 people to the famous Stonehenge.

Summer Solstice is a special time here because the sun rises behind the Heel Stone in the north east part of the horizon and the first rays shine into the heart of Stonehenge.

Each year people come from across the globe to watch a magical sunrise in this historical masterpiece.

Best Places to Travel to in June #8: Chichen Itza, Mexico

Summer Solstice really has a big impact on many cultures, traditions, and even monuments, like we described in Stonehenge. Chichen Itza has a similar situation, in which people gather around for both summer and winter solstice each year.

The reason the solstices are so special, is because the sun hits at the perfect point, where exactly half of Chichen Itza is covered in sun, while the other half is in the shade.
