Arctic Awakening (March - April)
Spring sees the Norwegian coast stir from its winter slumber, and offers the best of both snow and sun. Flora blooms, wildlife awakens, and waterfalls swollen with meltwater cascade into the fjords. The Northern Lights can still be seen as late as April, while the month of May puts all of Norway in party mode in preparation for Norway Day on 17th May.
Supreme Sunshine (May - August)
Turquoise fjords, emerald mountainsides, and frosted peaks – Norway’s landscapes are a stunning sight to behold in these summer months. The longer days invite exploration, with the Midnight Sun lighting the halcyon sky for the full 24 hours at summer’s peak. Locals spend these months leisurely reconnecting with nature; hiking, kayaking, birdwatching, and fishing. Why not come and join them?
The Golden Season (September - October)
Come autumn, shades of yellow, red, orange, and gold paint the forests of the coast, enhanced by the soft sunlight of this period. The first signs of snow begin to settle on the mountain tops and nature’s pantry is full of delicacies ready for harvesting. As the days grow shorter, the Northern Lights may also start to creep across the autumnal night sky.
Frozen North (November - February)
Venture above the Arctic Circle for your best chance to witness the Aurora Borealis, a dance of colours ranging from green and yellow to red and violet, and inexorably linked to local legend and myth. For a few precious weeks, the sun won’t even show above the horizon and casts a wonderful, Arctic blue light. Reindeer and huskies abound in this time of deep snow and ice.
