Saturday in the City: Market Square

The Market Square is in the centre of town and has a great view of the mainland mountains, the famous Arctic Cathedral and the worlds northern-most Cabel Car. During summer you can watch extreme sport lovers paragliding off the mountains in the back ground with their colourful parachutes. In the winter time the community often gathers together around the Christmas tree to dance and sing carols.

Norwegian Christmas

Juletid (Christmas time) is a celebration of traditions and family in Norway. With the fall of winter snow and the wonderful displays of Northern Lights, Norwegians sit round their fire places, dance around the Christmas tree, enjoy rich food and share julefryd (Christmas cheer) with family, friends and in their communities. At this special time of year we are happy to share the Norwegian Christmas with you. We hope you will celebrate with us by having a little bit of Norway in your Christmas.
