A SPARKLING WINTER DREAM
Inspired by the movie “Frozen”
5 days/4 nights
In 2012 media giant Disney visited Norway in search of inspiration for their movie, Frozen.
Frozen premiered in 2013 and became an astonishing success. The success continued as Frozen 2 hit the theatres in November 2019 (UK and US). We are all excited to follow Elsa on her quest to save Arendelle together with her sister, Anna, and friends Kristoff, Olaf and Sven.
Norway is in many ways the embodiment of the Frozen universe, with its blue winter light, crispy snow, fresh air and serene atmosphere. If you come to Norway we are happy to take you on an unforgettable Frozen-inspired adventure, where Scandinavia Tours AS will bring you the very best of the winter wonderland Norway.
