History And Culture Of Norway

We are not makers of history, we are made by history. Let's explore it!

Let’s move on to the whistle stop tour Norwegian history from pre- historic times to the oil era, via the kings. Although, modern Norway has only existed for 200 years the story of Nordic Islands is a long one. From the main pioneers of this previous land to the advanced time of building and innovation, there's such a long way to go.

The Iron Age prompted for less demanding development. New regions were cleared as the populace developed with the increased harvests. An altogether new social structure evolved. On the off chance that and when clashes emerged, the issues would be settled at a thing, a sacred place where all freemen from the surrounding areas would collect and could decide disciplines for violations. Basic disciplines for more minor offenses included fines, payable in food.

From the first century AD, the extending Roman Empire started to apply noteworthy social impact. Norwegians made a runic alphabet in order and started exchanging hides and skins for luxury things from other lands. Maybe the most well known period in Norwegian history, the Viking Age was a time of development for Norway as well as the entire Nordic district. Vikings were all around prepared with great weapons and they believed that being killed in fight brought about them going to Valhalla gave them a psychological preferred standpoint fighting for a long time.

Over 99% of the 4.3m populace of Norway talks the official dialect, Norwegian. Norwegian has 2 composed structures, "Bokmal" (Book Norwegian) and "Nynorsk" (New Norwegian) and they appreciate the equivalent lawful acknowledgment, despite the fact that "Bokmal" is progressively increasingly normal. Minority dialects incorporate Finnish, talked by 0.2% of the populace, basically in the northern district of Finn mark, and also "Sami", a dialect firmly identified with Finnish, talked by 0.9% of the Norwegian populace.

The Only Trouble Is "I Want To Go Back For More"!

It wasn’t meant to be but it turned out to be a solo trip to Norway, Paris and Bruges…and what a trip it was…Excellent. Flamingo Travels is so far my best tour operator yet.The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. The trip represented great travel for the cost. My booking was easy, the pre-information packet was timely and thorough. Interim questions were handled promptly and thoroughly, including going out of their way to help me with some hard to get reservations. The organization of the tour and the accommodations were excellent. The transfers were perfect and done with a high class Mercedes vehicle. Everything worked like clockwork. However, it was the genius of the itinerary, coupled with  two professionals, Nirali and Hiren, that put this trip into the A plus category.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a fun, relaxed, enjoyable holiday with fine cultural food - they will deliver!

The only trouble is "I want to go back for more"! A wonderful trip.

Flamingo Managed To Coordinate Every Aspect!

Few things command more respect than hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes we experienced from start to finish when organizing our trip to Scandinavian countries with Flamingo. 
Although our itinerary took us to more than 10 cities and one off the beaten path village of locals,especially when you're not with a group Flamingo managed to coordinate every aspect of our transport, taxis, tours, Ferries planes (also including the flights to/from home in India), boats & trains that are necessary to experience the highlights of Norway, Estonia, Sweden, Denmark & Finland in a short amount of time.They customized the tour to our preferences and all arrangements made were correct and well-effective.  Safety was never a concern.
Recommendations for hotels and accommodations were extraordinary. I am a big believer in managing expectations and I must say that thanks to this flamingo, their years of experience was well crafted in our three-week journey through all five countries significantly exceeded all of our expectations, even the weather cooperated.
While I suppose most people are interested in the large cities, we generally prefer smaller towns like FLAM & BALESTRAND. I am not sure you could fashion a "small town," or "country" tour, but after Stockholm we much preferred the smaller towns. This was our first trip with Flamingo. 
Breakfast was included every day. Our only other expenses were for lunch & dinner, so we had a good handle upfront on what the total cost of our trip would be.
Thank you very much for all that you did to make this part of our holiday so enjoyable - Highly recommend this way to tour Scandinavia, and especially with Flamingo.
