The Bright Winter

The light days of winter have arrived; the sun is shining for hours on end, and the snow is several metres deep, so everything is perfect for dog-sledding, snowmobile trips and ice fishing. Craggy peaks and wide open plains are ideal for off-piste skiing and long ski trips. The light gives the people of Northern Norway energy for feats like cross country ski races, the World Cod Fishing Championship and for colourful cultural events in the Sami Easter Festival.
