Lars Ovlien & co - Tour of Culture

At the intersection of culture, history and gastronomy, we create unique experiences from the Kongsvinger region. Kongsvinger's long military history related to the fortress and the camp, the mystique of Finnskogen and not least the many artists who come from the deep forests along the border with Sweden.

During the 1800s there was a cultural resurgence in Kongsvinger. Erik Werenskiold grew up at Kongsvinger Fortress, where his father was commander. Thomasine Lie was a godparent in his baptism, and she contributed greatly to her husband Jonas Lie becoming one of Norway's most read authors of his time. Little sister Erika Lie became one of Europe's most sought-after pianists, inspired Rikard Nordraak who wrote the national anthem and had a close relationship with Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, who wrote tribute poems to her. One of Erika's many piano students was Dagny Juel, who grew up at Rolighed, the country's only Women's Museum.

The Tour of Culture thinks experience springs from the world of culture. It's about telling a good story, taking yourself to a place or time where you can experience the region at its best and most authentic. They put together experiences for everything from history teams and the pensioners' association to companies or groups of friends. Together with their many partners, they offer unique accommodation, gastronomic experiences and a large selection of historical and cultural experiences with professional and entertaining guides. Just get in touch and they will help you put together a package according to your wishes.
