IMG 2560Although, August has been quite productive in terms of APECS activities after a long summer field season, I would like to highlight another exciting observation!

August is a great month to visit Northern Norway – now it is confirmed by personal experience! The weather is very pleasant outdoors as it is not yet cold and rainy. With such great weather, fishing and hiking are among the favorite occupations here. Luckily, it is literally a land of fjords rich in varieties of fishes, small hills and magnificent mountains that are tempting to climb! A fantastic seasonal addition is an abundance of mushrooms and, of course, berries. Among those, the cloudberry is a legend!
