Safety on the water

Safety tips to leave you high and dry

  1. Think safety, and keep that uppermost in your mind. Planning reduces risk and gives you more worry-free fun.
  2. Bring the necessary equipment. It should be in good condition, and easily accessible.
  3. Respect the sea and the weather. Only go out in your boat when it is safe.
  4. Follow the rules of the sea, and make sure you know what they are.
  5. Wear life jackets or other flotation devices.
  6. Make sure you are rested and sober. Do not drive a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  7. Be considerate, and remember that safety, the environment, and the well-being of everybody is a common responsibility.

Local food the Norwegian way

The rise in use of organic food has been an important political target in Norway, and in the last few years sustainable food consumption has gotten a big breakthrough.

In addition, the word "kortreist" (literally "short-travelled") has found its way into Norwegian cooking dictionaries. The word implies producing and consuming more local foods that don’t rely heavily on emission-inducing transport. Many of the local producers combine ancient Norwegian food traditions with new scientific methods for developing the products in a safe environment.

The products can be bought locally, or through the large supermarket chains that are focusing more and more on higher quality products from local producers.

Many Norwegians also take pride in cooking from what they harvest themselves. During summer and autumn, the forests are brimming with fresh, wild berries and tasty mushrooms, and harvesting them is seen as a recreational activity.
