Hunt Crabs Bigger Than Your Head in Kirkenes

I’m a big fan of seafood. I’ll say that now. And I find Norwegian cuisine very interesting. With the added benefits of being in the Arctic, getting to go on cruise adventure, AND getting to eat some of these beauties to reward your effort? Yeah, I’m in.

Hrm. I wonder what kind of trees those funny house looking ones are. What a great way to interact with nature.

Watch the Total Solar Eclipse in the Northernmost City in the World

Imagine yourself at the top of the world. You, few other people, a handful of residents who are outnumbered by polar bears on the island, and scientist. A photo posted by TravelGeni (@travelgeni) on Jul 15, 2016 at 6:21pm PDT   Welcome to Spitsbergen. While there isn’t a TON to do here, besides dog sledding, […]

Soak in the Mesmerizing Beauty of the Arctic

I’ll be honest, I kind of didn’t know we could even go to the Arctic. I didn’t know that the arctic circle extended downwards for a decent amount of area, and I had never really given the area a second thought. Imagine my surprise when my partner told me he had just gotten tickets for […]

Hurtigruten Chases the Northern Lights With You

If there was one cruise to go on to see Norway, it would be the Hurtigruten. An old mail ship that still runs up and down the coast of Norway, getting into all the small nooks and crannies of the country, often not seen by the majority of people, it truly is a spectacular way […]

Cruising the Hjordundfjorden with Hurtigruten

One of the very best ways to travel around Norway is by cruising the Hurtigruten. Offered shorter trips and longer coastal trips, this means of travel lets you explore Norway as they do, since it is a local mailing boat, they make stops at all sorts of delightful ports.

Take the Wheel- Driver’s Persective of the Most Dangerous Roads in the World

Sometimes on road trips the driving can get a bit repetitive. Places are far and the scenery all starts to blend together. In Norway, that just isn’t the case. Passing through beautiful fjords, being enchanted by cute cabins, and driving on some very zig zaggy mountains.   A photo posted by GALA Vinarstvi I alzbeta […]

Norwegians Celebrate Graduation like no one else. Check out Russ!

This was a difficult concept for me to grasp no matter how many times it was explained to me. When Norwegians finish high school, they have a massive celebration, call Russ. As in, they make up special clothes, costumes, paint cars, engage in all sorts of drunken party behavior, and generally let loose. Check out […]

Welcome to Norway Ski Heaven

Øystein Bråten showing off his skills on the slopes makes me seriously question if I am worthy to step out on the soft powder ever again. I’m more like the pre beginnger level. Norwegians not only invented the sport, but they have masted it, as you can see from the video above. High swells, stormy […]

Jump off Cliffs 8,000 feet Above the Fjords

Usually when I think of jumping off of something, I immediately stop and have a mini panic attack. That might just be me because these daredevils seem to have no problem base jumping off these monstrous cliffs. @magnussr @annalisaklare @sigfader 😏😏😏😏😏 #skydiving #basejumping #basejumpnorway #insane #flying #mountains #nature #norway #amazing A photo posted by Johannes […]
