Phil and Else Odden of Barronette, WI, are not only gold medal wood carvers, but also creative tour organizers. By developing contacts with rural artisans and traditional hospitality venues, their tours open unique doors to our rich Norwegian heritage.

Last summer two of our members, Tina Keune and her cousin, Bernice Duvall, were on the Odden’s trip from Oslo to Bergen. En route they visited musicians, silversmiths, log and Viking ship workshops, a Fjord Horse center, and more. They enjoyed daily stops at historic family farms, sampling their homemade refreshments.

Join us as Tina, a prize-winning artist herself, shares the exceptional opportunities offered by this tour. Come see Norway through the eyes of an artist.

Children’s activities can be offered during the presentation, but please give us a heads-up. Send an email to hospitality@norwaydc.org if you plan to bring children. Send questions about the program to programs@norwaydc.org.
