Traditional Norwegian Grøt

Traditional barley grøt recipe with a modern twist: As the grøt cools it will thicken. This is when we usually add in more milk… Peel and slice the clementines. The fruit will warm and the juice will mix with the creamy milk. The citrus flavour adds freshness and tang to the grøt.

Welcome Lights

Welcome lights aren’t just for the home, they are used by all types of businesses – doctor’s surgeries, charities, car dealerships, banks and even our car battery store. (Yes, Norwegian men appreciate being welcomed by lights too!)

The International Consumer in Norway

The city is on the edge, we are growing rapidly, but right now, there are just not quite enough people for all the shops to survive. Street shops have to compete against an import shopping tradition – Norwegians aren’t used to paying for a middle man.

Komsa Mountain in Autumn

Komsa Mountain has always been an special place for the peoples who live in the area, from the Stone Age with rock art, to the Sami with spiritual rocks and sites, and now to modern Alta as a place to look over the growing city and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature.
