 NORWAY

THE MIDNIGHT SUN COUNTRY

Norway is the land of the sailors, land of the conquerors and great explorers, the birthplace of the Vikings, and has for centuries been the starting place of great human adventurers that have notably lead the first Europeans to the American coasts five centuries before Christopher Columbus. Still today, Norway is a country which extracts the majority of its resources come from the sea: exploitation of oil from off shore companies since the beginning of the 70s has lead Norway into a new adventure, that of black gold. Today, this country of mountains and ice is one of the largest producers of crude oil and natural gas in the world... at the same level of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait!

The manna of oil quickly profited the entire country and allowed for a great development based equally on the fishing industry, heavy industry and forestry. A high standard of living has followed with high investments in the education and health sectors, all taken care of by the government.

Norway represents a true El Dorado, with a very high level of education and a high demand for a qualified workforce. In addition to these facts, Norway is a magnificent country of snowy mountains interrupted by enormous fjords, and wild forest with a quality of life without equal, where the towns are at the human scale, far from the stress and population of large cities that have the same advantages.

Looking for a society where the story around the hearth cohabited with the highest modernity, where the Aurora Borealis transforms the sky into a bridge towards paradise and where the sun does not set for a number of days, you can adopt the soul of the Viking adventurers and Norway will become your conquest.
