Lutefisk dinner — a nod to Norwegian heritage or full-blown food dare? You decide

Where the Journey is the Destination
After a couple of days though, the peace and diversity of the countryside became meditational, a panorama that seemed dreamlike through my windscreen. Traditional country cottages built into mounds of earth with grass-topped roofs and green weathered doors looked as if they were out of “The Hobbit.” Dark thick forest alternated with bucolic sun-dappled farmland and bare, desolate mountains overlooking quaint lakeside towns   Read More ...

Why Norway is teaching travellers to travel
We reached Trolltunga after seven hours, 13.5km and 1,000m of elevation gain. The fog rolled in as a line of 35 people waited to take their picture on the iconic cliff. Translating to ‘Troll’s Tongue’, Trolltunga juts out of a steep mountainside 700m above Lake Ringedalsvatnet near Odda in south-eastern Norway. Formed 10,000 years ago during the Ice Age when a glacier frozen to the mountain broke off, it has in recent years become one of Norway’s most famous geological sites – and one of its most controversial   Read More ...

Will ‘Tesla Tax’ in Norway Be The Nail In Company’s Coffin?
Norway, one of the world’s largest markets for electric vehicles (EVs), is currently considering the implementation of a tax on EVs and some are speculating that it could hit Tesla Inc. hard. That’s because the proposed tax will focus on cars that weigh more than two tonnes, The Financial Times reported. This puts Tesla models in the crosshairs of the tax as it could add over $10,000 or NKr82,800 to the cost of owning the most expensive cars from the brand   Read More ...

Norway seeks to trim lavish electric car subsidies
OSLO: Norway plans to trim lavish tax breaks for Tesla and other electric cars that have given it the world's highest rate of battery-vehicle ownership, the right-wing government proposed on Thursday.

Film gives minute-by-minute account of Norway’s entry into World War II
Norway was pulled into World War II when Germany invaded the previously neutral country on April 9, 1940. But conventional warfare there lasted only two months, until Norway surrendered to the Nazis on June 10. “The King’s Choice” looks, with a microscope, at those first couple of days of occupation, skirmishing and confusion. No one in this slow-moving Norwegian drama, which has been shortlisted for a 2017 Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film, seems more confused — at least initially — than Norwegian King Haakon VII (Jesper Christensen) who, as the story begins, is shown to be a slightly befuddled old man with a bad back, playing with his grandchildren   Read More ...
