Many first-time visitors to
the Arctic and sub Arctic may not be aware of the extreme variations in daylight
during the course of a year at high latitudes.

and on the location's latitude.

common to see people mowing their lawns at midnight in Fairbanks or Anchorage.
Here are some sample daylight-hour maximums and minimums.
