First we will cross country ski across Finland in the 34th annual Border to Border event, starting out near the Russian Border and skiing west 250 miles to the Swedish border over a seven day period. The beautiful snow-laden evergreen forests and vast farmland seem oddly misplaced as we follow along the Arctic Circle.
Then we take the plane from Helsinki to the Capitol city of Norway, Oslo, for a full day of walking around and enjoying the sights. The crown jewel of Oslo is the artistic Oslo Opera House looking out over Oslo Fjord. This beautiful building was designed for visitors to be able to walk on its sloping roof and enjoy views out over the water. We will also visit the Royal Palace, the Oslo Theater, the site of the annual Nobel Peace Prize award, and the imposing fortress of Akershus dating back to 1308. Plus insights into native sons: playwright Henrik Ibsen and painter Edvard Munch.
