As Autumn Arrives

Night time once again makes a faint appearance in Northern Norway. In mid-August, the night is short and a velvet blue, but in September the nights turn darker. In August, the Northern lights flicker lightly across the skies at sunset, though it’s September that brings the grand show. The colours of the mountain start changing in August and by September the mountain sides are clad in yellow and red. The Northerners return to their everyday lives after a quiet summer, enjoying crisp berries, autumn lamb and freshly caught saithe. Here are some late summer and early autumn suggestions.
