Norway has a lot to offer visitors - including high quality performing arts for a young audience.
From cosmopolitan Oslo to some of the wildest nature in Europe - there is no end of choices for those who come to the land of the midnight sun and the northern lights! Norway offers spectacular scenery, with stunning fjords, ragged mountains and blue glaciers. Although the country is vast and sparsely populated, it is easy to get around. Some of the best sightseeing opportunities could be explored by rail or coastal steamers.
Norwegians are probably best known as descendants of the Vikings, but the country has also fostered reknowned artists such as playwright Torbjørn Egner ("When the Robbers Came to Cardamum Town" and "Claus Climbermouse and the Other Animals in Huckybucky Forest"), animator Ivo Caprino ("The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix") and Oscar-winning animator and writer Torill Kove ("The Danish Poet").
