There's a noticeable difference between the north and south ends of the country. They are at 55 and 52 degrees latitude. The arctic circle is at 66.5 degrees. 66.5 - 55 = 11.5 degrees. At summer solstice, the sun only goes 11.5 degrees below the horizon in the north end of the country. 66.5 - 52 = 14.5 degrees for the south end. So the sun goes 14.5 degrees below horizon down there. So for the north of the country at solstice, it only gets as dark as nautical twilight, where horizon and vague outlines of objects can be seen.
You have to be out and about at 1 or 2am to really appreciate it.
