midsummer in scandinavia: where?

I'm planning to be in Iceland this June and would love suggestions for where else I should go in Scandinavia (or the Baltic states) to spend the midsummer weekend. I'll be traveling solo and I don't know anyone there. If it helps, I'm not so much into dancing but I really like food!

Staying in Iceland is definitely an option, but by that point I would've been there for around 10 days already so I thought I might go see other places -- unless there's a compelling reason to remain.
I was thinking of Helsinki at first, including a daytrip to Tallinn. But from what I've read online, it seems that many people head to the countryside around that time, so fewer shops and food places may be open.
That said, this is probably the case for many other Scandinavian cities, so I'm not sure which would be the least affected by closures. All suggestions would be very much appreciated!
