Do you want to get the Norwegian soul under your skin?
The Norwegians have since the first human being started fishing in the deep fiords been a proud people, and over the centuries they have worked hard in the narrow valleys or along the rugged coast to make theirliving. The Vikings challenged the seas and made it as the first Europeans to “Vinland” (Canada) and Iceland, where the Danish and Swedish Vikings headed south and east. Culture and traditions grew, each valley with their special crafts, dialects, approach to life. From sami nomads at the Arctic Circle, to the peasants’villages in the steep valleys to the milder climate around the capital of Oslo.
Still, after the discovery of the oil that turned Norway into a modern society, the inhabitants are true to their roots, traditions and history, which each year is proved at festive “17th of May”, the constitution day celebration and its parades of Norwegians dressed in regional costumes, flags and flowers. Let us set us lectures and field trips with experts and locals to learn more.
Furthermore, the Svalbard Islands in the Arctic Sea get more and more attention these years with the international political focus and the positioning race in the Arctic Sea.
Also, a place where climate change is a hot topic. Let us set up meeting and site visits for you to meet locals for a discussion.
