“It is better to go skiing and think of God…”

“…than go to church and think of sport.” – Fridtjof Nansen

The first of a 2-part post.  One of the most striking aspects of Norway is the amount of green space within very short distances of populated areas (it’s actually mandated by law.)  And Norwegians have blended the two effortlessly.  This is quite obvious when looking at Holmenkollen, a modern ski jump that rises (no pun intended) to great art, surrounded by trees and yet visible from downtown Oslo.  Make the effort to go there.  We recommend one of a number of Viator tours as the structure, nicknamed the Soup Ladle, is stunning and the view from the angled top is nothing short of dizzying.
