Norway Trip Updates

January 17, 2022

(June, 2022)

Yes, the trip is still a go for next year! Folk Art, Fjords, and Fiddles: Exploring Southern Norway With Kathleen Ernst will take place May 15 – 25, 2023.

Here’s the latest from our travel agency:

We have been under water with all the pent-up demand and rebookings from the last two years for travel this summer!  The travel industry is in a huge catch-up mode, as you can imagine, but we are very happy travel is back!

We have put out availability requests and pricing for next year to our partners in Norway for the group next Spring and are waiting on their responses.  They are in high operations mode now also, and are working in departure date order, so their responses are slower than normal.  We also cannot get air quotes until 11 months out – but that is coming up soon, so we should be able to have a new proposal with pricing coming up here in the next month.

I will communicate the trip details as soon as they are confirmed! In the meantime, you can learn more and express interest by following the link above. Thanks for your patience!

Norway Trip Update

After much discussion, both practical and emotional, the planning team for the Fiddling With Fate-themed tour to Norway has decided to postpone “Folk Art, Fjords, and Fiddles” until spring 2023. The same mid-May Syttende Mai timeframe will be in place.

We are so proud of the itinerary and protective of this carefully curated, once-in-a-lifetime experience that we don’t want COVID-19 concerns hampering the trip. Norway implements strict protocols, and we imagined time-wasting, forced quarantines, last minute destination reservation reversals—or even a trip cancellation.

Please join me and my friends at the Mount Horeb Area Historical Society, who are sponsoring the trip, in taking this extra year to dream even more about what’s to come!
