Tromso( Norway ) is situated about 217 miles within the Arctic Circle and is most famous for being the stop-off point for Northern Lights enthusiasts. Tromso is also the location where you can find the most northern Botanical garden, the Arktiskalpin Botaniskhage .

This is initially, somewhat surprising, since the city is in perpetual darkness from roughly late November to early January.From May until July however, the sun is continuously above the horizon in Tromsø, meaning that a solid two months of “midnight sun” provides some relief for the plants. Nevertheless, the specimens present are often too heat sensitive to grow in any other botanical garden and instead they thrive amongst the unique Tromsønian conditions.source
