Bergen City in Norway. Bergen is a city on Norway’s southwestern coast. It’s surrounded by mountains and fjords, including Sognefjord, the country’s longest and deepest. Bryggen features colorful wooden houses on the old wharf, once a center of the Hanseatic League’s trading empire. The Fløibanen Funicular goes up Fløyen Mountain for panoramic views and hiking trails. The Edvard Grieg House is where the renowned composer once lived.

Wunderscapes Travel

In July I will be leaving for a month-long trip to Croatia and Italy, but until then I won’t have some new pictures to share.  Instead, I’ll keep posting photos from my travels last year.  Today I’ve got some more pictures from Scandinavia that I feel should be shared. Enjoy!

My Maternal Great Grandmother, Gudrun Ivara (Lund) Linderman emigrated from Namsos, Lufthavn, North Trondelag, Norway in 1896

Namsos is a small municipality in Norway, in Nord-Trondelag County. It is in the area of Namdalen. The administrative hub of the municipality is Namsos, a small town. Some of the other small villages in the municipality are Spillum, Skomsvoll, Ramsvika, Klinga, and Bangsund. The municipality has a population of roughly 13,000, and it covers almost 300 square miles. 

Namsos is a very important trading destination in Norway, and it has a lot of recreational and cultural hotspots for tourists. In the late summer, you can go to the Namsos Country Fair, which is a shopping event for the whole Namdalen area. You can also see the Nord-Trondelag Art Gallery and the Concert Hall in the town. The gallery has permanent as well as temporary exhibitions of artists from both Norway and around the world. 

There are several different salmon fishing rivers within an hour of the town. There are even more fishing destinations up in the mountain lakes and along the coastline. If you ascend to the top of Mount Klompen, you can get a great view of the whole city of Namsos. 

There is a big outlet that sells candles of all colors, sizes, and shapes, and it is located in an old train station. 


The first half of the name comes from a local river called Namsen. The last part of ostranslates to “mouth of a river”. 


In 1846, Namsos was founded at the mouth of the Namsen river in Overhalden,, in the Saevik area. It was created as a distinct municipality, with roughly 600 inhabitants, and it was distinct from Vemundvik. 

In 1865, Namso became an official parish in the Church of Norway. A formal decision was made to create a church in the city in 1859. The construction was finished in 1859. The parish was created in 1865, and Saevik and Vemundvik were sub-parishes. 

Some parts of Vemundvik near to the town of Namos were afterward integrated into the city limits on several occasions. 

The town’s location near the river and the big forests made the town a great place for sawmills. Almost a dozen sawmills were operating at their peak, but there is only one sawmill that’s still standing: Moelven Van Severen. You can also visit the Norwegian Sawmill Museum at Spillum just to the south of the town. 

Namsos has a swimming pool, called Oasen, and it was built inside of a mountain.

My Maternal Great Grandmother, Gudrun Ivara (Lund) Linderman emigrated from Namsos, Lufthavn, North Trondelag, Norway in 1896 to Ellis Island, New York.
