While in winter the sun comes over the horizon above the Arctic Circle and we can speak of ‘Pool Nights’. In the area of food and drink is Norway not very well known. However, Norway has some typical Norwegian dishes such as meatballs, brown goat cheese, porridge cooked with thick sour cream with cinnamon and sugar, and in the summer months 'Spekemat'; marinated or dried meat.
