Northern Norway Travelling Tips

Northern Norway moves from darkness to light, and the day gets longer than the night. It's time for cross country ski treks, snowmobiling, ice fishing and snow kiting. Melting water is dripping from the roofs at daytime, but the frost strikes back at night. Helgeland in the south is entering spring, whereas the snow is still deep on every roof in the far north.
