Autumn is traditionally a quieter time in the outdoor enthusiast’s life. It is often a time to reflect over summer activities and a time to dream about winter goals. Autumn is, however, a beautiful time to visit Norway, especially Valdres. The colours are stunning with winter creeping in over the mountain tops and the valleys remaining green. While Autumn may not have the longest days and certainly does not have the most stable weather, it is possible to undertake both touring and mountaineering courses in the Jotunehim. And the mountains are simply empty and dramatic!
