Before succumbing to the allure of the Northern Lights, however, you must take note of the two very terse passages in this little guide concerning weather gear and mosquitoes. It rains a lot in Norway. From a Swedish perspective, the whole country is perpetually sopping wet. You'll want a full head-to-ankle rain suit. As for the mosquitoes, I have a recommendation. Before you plan your trek, read the novel "Beyond Sleep" by the Dutch writer Willem Frederik Hermans. After that, if you still have the urge, well, "bon voyage!"
Hikers should pay close attention to Roos' comments on clothing. The Norwegian mountain regions are subject to highly variable weather conditions. The isolation of many of these areas means hikers will be thrown on their resources in the event of bad weather.
Hikers should also expect to invest in maps of the areas where they plan to hike. The sketch maps in the book are not sufficiently detailed for routefinding.
This book is highly recommended to the dedicated hiker looking for opportunities in the still mostly wild interior of Norway.
