The travel industry is on hold, but we can still dream and plan ahead. On this page, we will post the latest news as well as inspiring quizzes and other tools about Norway as a destination.
Dear business colleagues,
These are strange and uncertain times. As the whole world focuses on how to handle the COVID-19 situation, the travel industry is on hold more or less all over the world. In spite of this difficult situation, we are planning for a better future and are preparing for the time when the world can open up again.
This new situation has made it necessary to find new ways of cooperating with and supporting our business partners in Norway and abroad. On these pages you will find updated information on our planned activities for the coming days and months, including links to webinars, quizzes, and virtual guided tours at museums and attractions. In this way, we hope to give you further knowledge about Norway and the products we can offer. We will also do our best to ensure that all our business contacts can get as much help as possible to keep business going and to start up again after the crisis.
We are here to support you and we look forward to the day when we can welcome you and your customers to Norway again.
In the meantime, we hope that you stay safe and healthy.
We would like to tell you a bit about Norway and give you a few brain teasers at the same time. You probably know the answers to some of these questions already, but hopefully you will also be surprised by all the wonderful things you didn't know. Enjoy the quiz, and as we say in Norwegian – lykke till!

Some suppliers cancel our bookings without just cause. What can we do about that?
We are very sorry to hear such things happening in times like this. When you entered a cooperation with the suppliers, you most probably signed a contract with terms and conditions. Such contracts should include text about cancellation terms and force majeure, and is legally binding for both parties.
