Smart Travels with Rudy Maxa: Oslo and Norway

Posted on 8/20/2019 2:27:00 PM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

In this film, host Rudy Maxa takes you on a grand tour of Norway. Fall in love with the dramatic landscape during visits to cosmopolitan Oslo, the hospitable Telemark region, the epic Sognefjord, and the maritime center of Bergen. Along the way, Rudy offers insider tips and tricks to prospective visitors. Vikings come to life in Oslo, where ships—like the one seen at the Viking Ship Museum on the Bygdøy peninsula—took off for raids across the European continent. In the quaint Sauherad, we get a glimpse of rural Norway by touring Evju Bygedetun, an 18th-century farm serving as a cultural center. Rudy introduces us to key figures in Norwegian culture by walking us through Gustav Vigeland’s eponymous sculpture park and the Bergen home of composer Edvard Grieg. This taste of Norway will make you hungry for more. Lucky for us, Rudy also gives us a recipe for lefse, Norway’s flatbread, to keep us satisfied on the journey!

Produced by Small World Productions
