What people are saying:

The most luxurious is the all-wood mortise and tenon structure church built more than 100 years ago, exclusively for the king. Some roofs are covered with grass. It is said that dried birch bark is spread on the roof to prevent insects and moisture, and then attach soil and sprinkle grass seeds. The grassed roof can keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer. So far, Norwegians go to their own cabins on the mountain for holidays, mostly houses with grass roofs. The museum has an exhibition hall dedicated to introducing the living conditions of the Sami people. They live in the Arctic Circle. Reindeer are important domestic animals. They can be pulled by carts and can also be eaten. We ate reindeer meat in Stockholm, which is tender and fragrant, comparable to beef.
