Norway's Nature

In Norways beautiful but ruff nature there is hiding wild animals in all variations. The rapidly changing whether makes living conditions tuff for animals. There are four seasons a year, with long, snowy winters and the midnight sun above the arctic circle in the summer.

The climate is mild, considering that about one third of the country stretches above the Arctic Circle, due to the effects of the Gulf Stream and its extension: the North Atlantic Drift.

There are many different biomes in Norway, from rocky shores, old forests, open tundras, wetland areas, city areas, too mountains or islands, and thats just above the waterline.
