People of the North

PEOPLE OF THE NORTH is a new series that visits spectacular places in Scandinavia. A team of three hosts venture to far-away places in northern Norway and the Faro Islands. Norwegian Arne Hjeltnes takes viewers to these remote places with chef Frida Ronge, known from Swedish television and the award-winning distiller Stig Bareksten. The trio meets up with the people who make a living from gathering, catching, and processing produce from both land and sea. The series starts in Alta, Finnmark, the most northern county of Norway, where viewers meet Johnny Trasti, a celebrated local chef. Along with his wife, Johnny runs a restaurant and boutique hotel by the legendary Alta River, one of the most exclusive salmon rivers in the world. Various episodes take viewers through Sami territories to meet the indigenous people of the north and out along the Norwegian coast to the fishing villages of Kjollefjord, Soeroya, and to beautiful Lofoten.
