13. Tromsø, Norway
North of the Arctic Circle in Norway’s top end lies the town of Tromsø, home to the world’s most northernmost marathon, the Marathon of the Midnight Sun. This subarctic town experiences no real darkness from late April until mid-August and this is what’s known as the midnight sun. Participants from over 50 countries flock to Tromsø in June to run in this race which starts at midnight and is run through the night…the only catch is it’s not even dark! If you want to experience the unique feeling of perpetual daylight while running a course filled with beautiful Norwegian scenery, this one’s for you.
