Autumn officially kicks in come September, and in the northern parts of Sweden, Norway and Finland, the trees are changing in colour and there's a certain chill in the air. Enjoy the return of the Northern Lights from Swedish Lapland's unique design hotels or experience Greenland's icebergs & glaciers in its beautiful autumnal glow.
Autumn auroras at the Treehotel, Swedish Lapland
In the southern cities and capitals, September may still bring warm summer days, making it ideal for late-season urban exploration. However, in the far north, the nights are now dark enough for displays of the Northern Lights, and the first snowfalls often return to the mountains.
Glass igloo at Levin Iglut, Finnish Lapland
September is the last chance to enjoy outdoor adventures on canoes and kayaks, with the countryside and archipelagos particularly quiet and peaceful during this time. Enjoy hikes and take in the autumnal colours, stay in a glass igloo for a chance to witness the early-season aurora or relax in a wilderness log cabin and enjoy foraging for autumnal berries.
