Can you guess where this destination is from the clues below?
This beautiful seaport is a town of just 45,000 year-round residents spread over seven islands. A massive fire in 1904 completely destroyed this town, leaving 10,000 people homeless. The town was rebuilt a few years later, almost entirely in the Art Nouveau style.
Sunrise can be just after 3 am and then the sun won’t set again until the next morning, providing nearly 20 hours of daylight. It never really gets dark during part of the year, just becomes dusk for about four hours and then the sun rises again, which isn’t surprising since this destination is just 3° from the circle.

Ålesund is a town and municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway, noted for its unique concentration of Art Nouveau architecture. You can venture out to the lighthouse in Alnes, a tiny isolated town on the island of Godøya, with a population of just 100. To get there you drive through two long undersea tunnels plus a long one-way tunnel to cut through a mountain on Godøya itself. Five times we had to squeeze by oncoming traffic. Back in Ålesund, you can climb 418 steps to a cliff overlooking the town.
