Autumn is the season of contrasts
The landscape is painted in a rich tapestry of red, yellow, and orange hues, transforming the surroundings into a enchanting canvas of earthy tones. And, already from late August there is a chance to witness the mesmerizing northern lights.
The autumn is the perfect season to go hiking. The lovely fragrance of Arctic heather and birch forest is refreshing and gives new energy.
It is the season of harvest which brings amazing local produce to the plates. The midnight sun, and cool Arctic air gives an amazing taste to the slowly growing vegetables and berries. Our nature also provides us with mushroom and Arctic berries that we can pick ourselves. This makes Autumn a season of great food, and we can share hearty meals made from the freshest ingredients.
The combination of these natural wonders and the vibrant local traditions make Tromsø's autumn a period of tranquil beauty, embracing the senses in its warming, moody, and colorful embrace.
