    Norway - Travel Video.
    DVD. 7 Days. 52 Minutes. Norway is a fascinating land in the extreme north of Europe where both magic and fairytales are very much alive. It has crystal clear lakes and rivers, snow covered mountains, idyllic fishing villages and endless beaches that are only accessible by boat. Although the Norwegian metropolis of Oslo is a modern city it continues to be inspired by the lively spirit of its past traders, fighting men and seafarers. Oslo is a harbour town that lies well sheltered at the end of a fjord and in the ninth century it was much appreciated by the Vikings who travelled throughout the known world, plundering much of it! Bergen's main tourist attraction is the Bryggen district that originated in the middle of the fourteenth century when it was heavily influenced by the North German Hanseatic Office. The city not only boasts a fascinating history but also a number of music festivals and it was the birthplace of world famous composer Edvard Grieg. Trondheim is Norway's historic capital in which the country's kings have been crowned. The Nidaros Domkirke is the most splendid Gothic cathedral in northern Europe. It was built on the bones of Holy Olav. For several centuries it has been a place of pilgrimage and since the Middle Ages the Norwegian kings were crowned and also entombed within its walls. The small village of Nusfjord is located in front of a captivating backdrop of mountains. Due to its unique location it looks more like a high mountain village than a fishing settlement. It is both an historical as well as a cultural treasure. It is easy to understand why the descendants of the Vikings are so proud of their fascinating home in the extreme north. Norway, a country bursting with breathtaking and untamed beauty!

The Bryggen district was once founded by the German Hanse and is one of Bergen's most famous landmarks. The picturesque houses that once belonged to German traders make the charming historical district look more like an open air museum. The Ms Nordnorge is one of a new generation of ships that belong to the famous Hurtigruten Fleet and can take 700 passengers. At the mouth of the Nidelv in the Trondheimsfjord is the third largest city in Norway, Trondheim, an important trading and administrative centre. At the beginning of the 13th century Trondheim was a city of great influence and was also where the Norwegian kings of mediaeval times were crowned and although it gradually lost its political importance it still contains several fascinating buildings. From Trondheim the ship travels the century-old historic route north into Norway's most remote regions. Four and a half hours from Bod? and we arrive at the Lofoten, a fairy-tale group of islands in the North Atlantic. When the weather is fine we relax on deck, take in the fresh sea air and sunbathe while the ship glides through the water.

    Lofoten (A Fascinating Island Of The Far North) - Travel Video.
    DVD. On Tour. 26 Minutes. Situated in the extreme north of Europe the Lofoten have always been a special place. The picturesque beauty of this group of islands located just off the Norwegian coast has lost nothing of its age old fascination and colourful sense of history. With 1,400 inhabitants Stamsund is the main fishing village of the archipelago.Although the surrounding fishing grounds contain an abundance of fish the industry that once flourished here is not as prosperous as it once was.Now for much of the population tourism provides a lucrative alternative to the traditional fishing industry of bygone times and the five large main islands of the Lofoten have a perfect infrastructure and are connected with each other by way of various bridges and tunnels. The small village of Nusfjord is located in front of a captivating backdrop of mountains.Due to its unique location it looks more like a high mountain village than a fishing settlement.The village is both an historical as well as a cultural treasure and almost all of its buildings date back to the 19th century when its entire population worked in the fishing industry. The beautiful unspoiled landscape of these `Islands Of The Gods' is full of captivating mystique and it no wonder that the Vikings also romanticized about their natural splendour.

    Lofoten Norway - Travel Video.
    DVD. Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. The Lofotes, the Vikings who built a base here in the 9th century, called these islands in the extreme north of Europe, The Islands of the Gods. Reminiscent of the Alps, this group of islands, just off the beautiful Norwegian coast, is located between 100 and 300 kilometres north of the Polar Circle. The origins of the primeval Lofotes date back to the beginning of the earth's history and are more than 3.5 million years old. The Vestfjord played a vital part in the settlement of the islands. Since the 3rd century B.C., the settlers here survived by farming the land and breeding animals. Fishing also played an important role. As the cod of the Polar Sea migrate each year in late winter to the Vestfjord to spawn, an increasing number of fishing families now live in this area. Rocks, sandy beaches, meadows and swamps form a truly unified landscape. It is therefore hardly surprising that the landscape of the Lofotes is now so popular with the various artists who come to this region.

    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The inhabitants of the Lofots situated in the High North of Europe have made their mark on these islands right up to the present day and have established various wonderful communities such as the picturesque village of Nusfjord, a fishing village that has retained all of its original charm. The village is equivalent to an open-air museum and has become one of the most famous tourist attractions of the Lofot Islands. For more than a thousand years cod has been the most important commodity for this northern archipelago and even the legendary Vikings appreciated the once fish-filled waters of the Lofots. Many villages still display long rows of fish that are hung out to dry in the salty sea air and are a tasty specialty of this region. Today there are a total of around two thousand fishermen on the Lofot Islands, men who continue to work in the thousand year old cod fishing of this remote region. Here, Nature dominates all and it is well worthwhile to follow the history of these island settlements and to explore picturesque fishing villages such as that of Nusfjord.

    Bergensbanen (Exciting Train Journey From Oslo to Bergen) - Travel Video.
    DVD. On Tour. 26 Minutes. The fascinating journey on the famous Bergensbanen begins in Norway's capital city of Oslo which contains a large variety of interesting historic buildings that are well worth a visit. Indeed, the city originated in the middle of the 11th century during the reign of King Harald H?rdr?de. For almost a century Norway was part of Sweden and in 1905 a referendum put an end to its unpopular union and Norway achieved its Independence. The construction of the railroad posed a major challenge for the engineers of that time and its construction took many years. The first section of today's Bergensbanen was completed in 1883 and extended from Bergen to Voss. On its journey to Bergen the Bergensbanen travels across the highest plateau in Europe, the 8,000 square kilometre, Hardangervidda. At 1,222 metres above sea level Finse is the Bergensbanen's highest station and was opened in 1909 when Norway's King Hakon was one of the first passengers to travel on the new railroad. The journey on the Bergensbanen not only travels through one of the most charming and natural landscapes in Europe it also features the history of Norway: a unique adventure indeed!

    Norway - Travel Video.
    VHS. Globe Trekker Video. Ian Wright begins his Nordic journey high on a cliff in Stavanger, where he witnesses the extreme sport of Base Jumping. He journeys from Staveanger to Bergen by ferry, which takes him along just 150 of Norway's 21,000 miles of coastline. Ian enjoys a night out with locals and travellers in Bergen and discovers that drinking in Norway requires a small mortgage. The next stage of the journey is from Bergen to Voss by train. The usually highly reliable train breaks down and Ian has to complete his journey by taxi. He arrives in Voss before nightfall and camps out at the edge of a clear lake - not a very comfortable option but next morning aches and pains are soon forgotten as Ian takes on nature with a lesson in river boarding. Ian travels onwards to Stryn, one of Norway's three summer ski resorts. The journey takes two days by coach and Ian has the opportunity to see Norway's mountainscapes at their best, as well as take a short trip in a replica Viking boat. Ian has a go at a telemart skiing - a traditional form of skiing that combines downhill and cross country styles. To help him recover, he takes a quick sauna. Three hundred miles further north by bus to Trondheim, Ian rents a bike and takes a whistle stop tour of the town. He then travels by train and plane to Lapland, the land of the Midnight Sun. Lapland is also known as Samiland and it covers parts of Sweden , Russia and Finland. Ian thumbs a lift from a Sami Reindeer farmer and soon finds himself erecting a Norwegian Labu or tent. Dinner that night is dried reindeer meat, which seems to be a staple of the Sami diet. Before leaving Lapland Ian is invited to a colourful Sami wedding. After the ceremony the guests enjoy a lavish feast of, not surprisingly, reindeer meat! Ian dons his wellies, hat and white overalls and spends three days gutting fish to earn enough money for a helicopter flight to Spitzbergen, the Northern most point of Norway. With a greater population of polar bears than humans, this island is the closest stretch of land to the North Pole. The temperatures are way below freezing and Ian has the opportunity to go ice diving with some resident researchers. The ultimate challenge of Ian's Norwegian journey comes in the form of eight huskies and a sled which take Ian deep into the wilderness. Approximately 60 minutes.
