Mr. Olav Lühr, Marketing Director in the Hurtigruten company, says Norwegians are looking forward to establishing long-term cooperation with tour operators of Arkhangelsk Oblast. The ultimate goal of this cooperation is to promote Norway as a brand and attract Russian tourists to Norway. The Norwegian party is planning to hold training seminars for managers and directors of local companies where they can find out what Norway can offer them.

Mr. Lühr also believes in the Russian region’s potential as a tourist destination. -The only prerequisite for the development of the local tourism industry will be to develop its potential. You need to define your highlights and customize your tourist products, he advices.
