Frozen, the Disney animated movie that has been a children’s hit in many countries has caused a rise in visitations to Norway.
Norway was the principal setting for the movie, and many of the cultural influences in the film come from Norwegian culture. Several major landmarks in Norway appear in the film, including three of my favourites the Akweshus Fortress in Oslo, the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, and Bryggen in Bergen. Numerous other Norwegian attractions are also included in the film, such as stave churches, trolls, Viking ships, clothes, and food.
There has also been a spin-off for my book Experience Norway which is now the most popular in the Experience book series. Sales have increased by more than 25% in the past few months due no doubt in part to the movie. Thank you Disney Films!
