Originally a nation with an economy traditionally based on fisheries and shipping, Norway struck gold when oil was found in the North Sea during the early 1970’s. The engineering challenges involved in the development of offshore exploration and drilling have led to the development of a high-tech industry, and today Norway is one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Norway extends across 14 degrees of latitude, and measures 1,752 kilometers from north to south, making Norway a country offering a variation in landscape, vegetation and climate seldom found elsewhere. Norway is one of the few countries in the world where the distinctions between the seasons are so clearly drawn. Yet, in some parts of the country you can experience winter and summer at the same time. This makes for wonderful contrasts in the light conditions – from the northern lights of winter to the perpetual daylight of summer.
Norwegians have strong ties to nature and are very proud of their country. This applies to professional film people as well, who are eager to show you locations the likes of which you have never seen before.
So why not let us know what you think you want, and we’ll find you locations you had no idea you were looking for?
Yours, Truls Kontny
Head of Commission
