I'll take my tourism dollars to Sweden and Denmark then!
Norwegian scenery is beautiful, but it has nothing on the American southwest
I don't think he meant it seriously
Y'all got fjords?
it looks like the show was a great success:
Fully 2,542,000 Norwegians tuned in to NRK’s channel 2 (NRK2) during the weekend, in a country of just 4.93 million people. Many were also watching from outside Norway, with 46 percent of those clicking in to NRK’s live coverage via its website coming from abroad.
The biggest concentration of viewers was watching as late as midnight Sunday in Norway when the Hurtigruten ship sailed in and out of the scenic Trollfjord in Lofoten, lit by the Midnight Sun. At that point, 692,000 people were watching what looks set to rank as the world’s longest documentary on television ever produced.
The program has also turned into what the Norwegians call a huge folkefest (literally, “people’s party” as folks turn out in droves to wave at the ship, escort it in their own boats or gather on the pier at its ports of call.
Well played, well played
I dunno, the Pacific Northwest can be pretty pretty too. As a matter of fact, my friend is gathering up people to go on a road trip along the Oregon/Washington coasts. Should be great!
Fjords aren't unique to Norway! Canada has a lot. Most are in BC or in Nunavut, but here's one I want to see in Newfoundland. Perhaps a few summers from now.
But Norway has huge number of beautiful ones!
This is Sognefjord last summer, one of the thousands of fjords in Norway:
