From September to November, there are fewer visitors and you can have some hidden gems almost all to yourself. When the weather allows, the locals go hiking on their favorite trails in the crisp, fresh mountain air. Cozy cafés and museums in the cities are hotspots when rain or snow sets in. This is also the time to experience another side of fruit farming along the Sognefjord and in Hardanger, when the harvest season brings fresh juices, ciders and jellies to the dinner table. The weather can vary a lot in autumn and the sun sets at a later hour each day, leaving fewer hours of daylight for outdoor adventures. If you plan carefully according to the weather, you can experience mild autumn sun and vibrant colors in a wild landscape.
