The climate of Finnmark (Norway)
Finnmark is the northernmost province in Norway. With a population of only 2 per square kilometer this is one of the most thinly populated regions in Europe. The largest part of the population lives in the capital VadsÝ. Fishing is the main source of income and to a lesser degree tourism and cattle farming. Finnmark has a tundra climate that changes into a cold continental climate with cool winters and cool summers. During the summer daytime temperatures are 14-15 degrees Celsius. During the winter daytime temperatures are -3 to -8 degrees Celsius which is fairly warm for this degree of latitude. This is caused by the influence of the relatively warm sea water. The Atlantic Gulf Stream has a warming effect causing temperatures in this part of Norway to be higher than in the interior. During the winter this is the warmest region in Lapland which stretches out to the northern part of Finland.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
