WEATHER & CLIMATE The weather in Northern Norway is subject to frequent changes. This part of Norway, inside the Arctic Zone, benefits from a surprisingly pleasant micro climate. At a latitude of 68° North and 300km North of the Arctic Circle, summer here is relatively mild with average temperatures of around 14°C (57°F). However, it is humid and does rain regularly. Good quality (breathable with sealed seams) rain clothing (waterproof jacket and trousers) are paramount. Keep in mind this Norwegian proverb when packing: 'There is no bad weather, only bad clothing' KEEPING WARM We prefer that you do not wear cotton clothing, including underwear, when participating in activities. When cotton gets wet from water or sweat it ceases to insulate and it does not dry fast. The best materials for outdoor activities are fast drying materials like polyester or materials which are warm when wet like wool. The most powerful materials against the wind and rain are 'breathable' materials like Gore-Tex or Nikwax. Winter in Norway can be very cold, please think carefully about what clothes you bring, although we will provide warm outer layers, the layers you wear next to your skin make the biggest difference. We recommend: No cotton Bring dry spares of everything, even underwear and gloves Wear multiple layers including: 1.A warm breathable base layer 2. A second thermal layer 3. Wind and waterproof protective out layer (we provide an additional quality jacket and over trousers.
