Autumn starts early in the Arctic..
..and it’s already noticeable in August when you see that the sun gets lower on the horizon, the temperature starts to drop, and the presence of bird life is decreasing. This doesn’t halt expedition operations, fantastic colours blanket the landscape as the degrees Celsius dip below zero, the fjord ice begins to freeze, and the smell of the fresh, crisp, autumnal air pleases all.
The many mountain tops appear sprinkled with flour, as they have a fresh layer of snow. By the end of August, the first sunset after four months of constant daylight arrives, turning the sky into an explosion of orange and red tones impossible not to appreciate.
