There are actually more polar bears than people up there! There are also many mountains in the interior of Norway. These mountains are great places to go skiing, take long hikes, and even see the northern lights. Many little villages are nestled into the mountains and along the coastlines. These villages are good for tourists to buy little souvenirs and take a glimpse at the rural culture that is very predominant in Norway.
The E provinces provide rich farm lands, forests, coal mines, and major fishing sources along the long coastline. Source of a route into the interior for early settlers, the St Lawrence-Great Lakes area is the most populous section of Canada as well as its economic and political center. It contains over 60% of the population. Abundant minerals have made Canada the world leader in the production of silver, nickel, potash, and zinc; second in gypsum, asbestos, uranium, and sulfur; third in gold, lead, and platinum; fourth in magnesium and fifth in copper. Timber is also valuable, and Canada is a world leader in newsprint production.
Norway has always depended on its relations with foreign countries. Glaciation and many other forces in time have worn down the surface to create thick sandstone, conglomerate, and limestone deposits known as sparagmite, as well as other numerous extensive areas called peneplains whose relief has been largely eroded. Remains of the latter include the Hardanger Plateau, which is the largest mountain plateau covering 4600 square miles of southern Norway. The climate of Norway is an interesting one, it shares almost the same latitudes as Alaska but its climate is moderately warmer. Norway owes its much gentler weather to the gulf- stream.
It is also one of the most clear lakes in the world with an average visibility of 27ft with some regions as deep as 100ft. ThunderBay In the Thunder Bay, the outdoors is not simply someplace you visit, it is a way of life. The area provides quality opportunities for adventure enthusiasts of all ages and skill. With the regions history there are many great options for learning and exploring. With records of fur trade dating back as early as 1683, the Thunder bay area has a rich history of people, places, events and culture.”Trading and supply boats routinely passed Thunder Bay on their way to outposts at Mackinaw, Sault Ste.
Renowned for its stunningly beautiful countryside, Canada mixes the flavour of Europe with the bustle of trendy New York, The Canadian Rocky Mountains and its parks, is a destination of choice for millions of visitors annually. For over 100 years the community of Calgary have enjoyed living among the most beautiful natural surroundings in North America. “The continents territory is divided between only Canada and USA its population of over 277 million is heavily concentrated in a pocket between the grate lakes and the east coat.” (Burton 1995) As we all know New York is situated to the south of Canada and located on the west coast of the United States. New York is a vibrant, sophisticated, diverse and happening 24-hour city with plenty to see and do day or night The north east roughly revises 40 per cent of the USA population, 37.6 per cent of all domestic tourism is focused on the three states around new York, new jersey and Pennsylvania Known as the “Big Apple”, featuring the world famous buildings such as The Empire State and Chrysler buildings. New York is oozing with culture; you could easily spend a day strolling through one of its many galleries and gardens or choose from 150 museums including the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History all well known across the globe.
Introduction Whitehorse receives its name from the nearby rapids of the Yukon River because of the way the frothy water resembles a mane on a fair horse. Those very rapids also happen to be the reason why the city of Whitehorse was originally established just over a century ago. The downtown and Riverdale subdivisions sit in a valley, which in turn provides an extra level of comfort against the extremes in temperature which occur in the territory (Pinard, Jean-Paul, 2007). Whitehorse is the Capitol of the Yukon. Holding 26,418 people (© Government of Yukon 2011), far more than any other community in the Yukon, the city upholds most of the economy of the territory.
Some major tourist attractions are the beautiful ice sculpted, jagged mountains, which rise above deep-forested valleys-terrain carved by moving ice. The Park Complex contains more glaciers than any other national park in the United States outside Alaska. These glaciers are an important source of water for salmon, other wildlife, plants, and people in the Puget Sound region. The cascading waters, which provide a large and expanding nearby population with a wide variety of recreational opportunities, from boating and camping to climbing and backpacking. The vast wildlife also is a major attraction because it is the core of one of the largest protected wild areas in the United States and is a substantial portion of it is designated wilderness.
Another reason is because a large number of the manufacturing plants are located in the southern section of Canada. Canada is rich in natural resources. It is a world leader in value of mineral exports and produces and exports many of the mineral needed for modern industrial economies. It's soils which are especially rich in the three prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, are intensively utilized and make Canada one of the world's largest exporters of agricultural products. Forests cover much of the land, and Canada is the world's largest exporter of newsprint and a leading supplier of lumber, pulp, paper, and wood products.
It is considered one of the top countries to live in and to visit. Millions of tourists and business travelers visit the great country of Finland every year. They get to experience the wonders and the beauty of the northern lights, the famous saunas, the various historical sites, buildings, and the diversity of foods not commonly found anywhere else. A country so full of rich history and hospitable people, that many would consider it one of the best places to conduct business in. Where else can you have an important business meeting, just wrapped in a towel, in a sauna, with sub-freezing temperatures outside?
As I mentioned, due to the huge coastline, fishing is the second largest export in Norway and a vital part of the economy. Forestry is equally profitable as 33% of Norway consists of forested regions (cia.gov) Natural gas and minerals are also abundant in Norway, adding to their wealth of resources. Norway sits as the third largest exporter of natural gas. Remarkably, almost all of the power in the country is produced by hydropower through all the the mountain rivers. Not only does Norway boast many valuable resources, but they are very good at making the most of them and harnessing their power (Lyssand, Hallvard).
