Autumn season in the Arctic is the season of colours and light.

This is the season of colours. The light and colours in the landscapes are spectacular.

The birds have now migrated to the south. Late August and September is spectacular when it comes to light and colours. The Polar Bears will be more sleepy because it is more difficult to hunt. Only the Polar Bears that still roam the drift ice will be hunting and active as usual.

The weather can be more unpredictable in late September but not necessarily. The autumn season gives in general less ice and snow, but we can also experience the first new snow from the coming winter.
