Capturing Norway’s breathtaking scenery and the contrasts of its mountains and fjords, cities and islands, the Coast programme discovers Britain and Norway’s age-old links, shared links and reliance on the sea.
The episode looks back on the Viking and wartime history as well as ahead to Norway’s innovative advances in sustainable energy and environmental science, whilst showcasing the 13,000 mile long spectacular coast.
The BBC team covers the many different aspects a visit to Norway may offer, from fishing king crabs and cruising in the magnificent fjords, to holidaying in old red fishermen huts on the Lofoten Islands and the traditional induction ceremony when crossing the Arctic Circle onboard the Hurtigruten.
The one-hour programme also looks at what connects Norway's magnificent Geirangerfjord to the UK, how a nation relying on hydroelectric power supplies one fifth of Britain’s gas, and how the ancient Viking craft of building longships has stood the test of time.
In BBC Coast’s first ever visit to Norway, places visited include Lillesand, the Hardangerfjord, Bergen, Telavåg, the Geirangerfjord, Ålesund, Nyhamna, Svalbard and the Lofoten Islands.Hopefully the programme inspired you to visit Norway for yourself!
