A training visit for tour operators from the Arkhangelsk region and the Nenets autonomous area was held within a joint project of the Norwegian-Russian Chamber of Commerce.
Representatives of the regional tourism industry visited a number of Northern Norway cities where they presented foreign tourists attraction programmes. They also visited popular tourist sites and infrastructure, travel and resort possibilities for Russian tourists.
According to the Norwegian companies, Russian tourists prefer active tours and eco-tours: crab safari, sea fishing in fjords, and visits to the Sami village.
During the visit Norwegian and Russian tour companies also discussed possibilities of bilateral cooperation. They reached an agreement to arrange a return visit of the Norwegian businesses to Arkhangelsk during the Margaritinskaya Fair.
