If you had just one day to spend in one of the world's most beautiful countries, and you wanted to see it in all its stunning variety - field, farm, forest, fjord, mountain and the sea - how would you do it? You'd take Norway's Northern Railway, on a day's journey from Trondheim, across the Arctic Circle, to Bod? on the Atlantic. The Northern Railway: A Journey Across the Arctic Circle takes its viewers on this remarkable trip, seen through every season. From a comfortable seat beside a large window you pass through Norway's incredible scenery and dazzling vistas. We travel north - nearly 500 miles - and at the end, we've seen a gorgeous country in all its rich variety, all in a single day. Along with remarkable scenery and a real sense of journey, the viewer learns the history of The Nordlandsbanen - the Northern Railway - Norway's longest rail line, from Trondheim, near the middle of the country, nearly 500 miles north to Bod?, on Norway's rugged and mountainous Atlantic coast. That history includes a dark chapter - the Nazi extension of the Northern Railway using slave labor after the invasion of Norway in 1940. The Northern Railway: A Journey Across the Arctic Circle will delight travelers - active and armchair - railway buffs and anyone who loves spectacular scenery and stunning vistas around every corner in the land of the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights.
