Winter at North Cape
Warm and cold winter adventures!
Because of the Gulf Stream, the coast of Finnmark has ice-free harbours and generally mild winters. There is a lot of snow in the winter, but many areas are protected by the mountains and are thus shielded from the wind and cold from the sea. In the interior towards the border of Finland, it can get very cold in the winter and dry and hot in the summer, but weather and temperature change quickly throughout the entire county. Climate table is to be found at this page.
Summer or winter, autumn or spring: Bring good shoes and warm clothing, and you will be prepared to enjoy Finmark’s nature, no matter the weather!
