Oppmerksomhet kan ikke settes i banken

Fjord Norge har fått massiv oppmerksomhet, særlig i USA, de siste ukene. Det begynte med 60 minutes, som viste fram basehoppere i Romsdalen. Deretter fulgte National Geographic Adventure, med syv sider og førsteside om Fjord Norge som et Mekka for actionsportutøvere. Deretter fulgte nok et høydepunkt: Fjord Norge har igjen vunnet en kåring i regi av National Geographic, der et ekspertpanel rangerte 133 “iconic destinations” verden over. Så ble den plutselige medieinteressen toppet av Good Morning America, med fokus på Sognefjorden. I sum: Medieoppmerksomhet verdt titalls millioner på et par uker. Hva nå?

My Favourite Hotel

There is this place that I keep coming back to. Turtagrø Hotel is the place were mountaineering was born in Norway, as british climbers explored the mountains of the Hurrungane range 150 years ago. It was where artists and composers retreated to seek inspiration, among them, the famous Edvard Grieg. Still, this little lodge-like hotel is  the best  basecamp for alpine climbing and ski touring in Southern Norway.

Off-season Colours

The fall is yellow. And red. And brown. Nordfjord, early October.

When every tourist leaves Fjord Norway, the nature becomes even more beautiful. The leaves change colours, and the forest explodes in yellow, brown, red, green – and, as the snow starts falling on the mountains, white.
