indexThe 2013 film Frozen was made with the support of the tourism agency of Norway which caused a sharply rise in tourism. However, some officials began warning that Norway was experiencing “too much of a good thing”.


At present, many Norwegian politicians are thinking about implementing tourist tax to aid local communities to handle efficiently the influx of visitors.


To note, the Socialist Left Party and their local Nordland party leaders, the Christian Democrats, the Liberals and the Red Party have finally supported the introduction of a new tourist tax to sponsor and maintain the growing demand of the tourist numbers.


The summer of 2017 already witnessed roadside loo facilities in dire need of preservation along with ongoing safety concerns at popular tourist spots like the well-known Trolltunga promontory. This spot has become so much popular in recent times that mountain rescue services are failing to manage and come to the help of all of the not-prepared visitors who face trouble while hiking. Introducing tourist tax is a way in which the Norwegian state shift funds to the local municipalities.
