End the tour in a bar situated in a food hall while tasting three Norwegian craft beers and a traditional Scandinavian spirit, called Akvavitt or Water of life. If you haven't tried Akvavitt or even if you did, you will have to repeat it because is perfect for cold dark winter nights or fresh summer days. If you're not a fan of the beer we can offer you something else, like cider, wine or soda just bear in mind there are no Norwegian wines since it’s rather cold for growing grapes so far north.
