Last weekend, Queen Sonja has been in Finnmarksvidda (North of Norway) for a private trip. She stayed in Jotka lodge and went around with a snowmobile
The article tells more about what she did during the - very active - weekend.

"We have a very fit Queen. She impressed with good humor and good skills on the snowmobile", said hostess Lisa Romsdal Kristensen.
Nina Somby, who by chance met Queen Sonja in a cabin, said: "It was fun to see her in snowmobile suit and sit to talk about the weather and ordinary things. The King has a vigorous wife, and she is a great role model for us."

King Harald agreed to be patron of this year's Telethon on October 20th. The money will go to "The National Association for Public Health" (one of King Harald's patronages) and their work to improve the lives of people with dementia.
The NRK Telethon is the world's largest fundraising and has a long tradition in Norwegian society.

Already some time ago, at February 24, Norwegian skier Axel Lund Svindal had the luck to have a spontaneous conversation with King Harald in a plane
At the flight from Munich to Oslo, King Harald and Queen Sonja had the seats right in front of him. He asked if it's ok to sit down and talk. King Harald said that the starting order in the Super-G World Cup had not been fair (Svindal won Bronze).
Svindal: "It's fantastic how lucky we are in Norway to have such a King. He is both interested and informed about sports. I had a nice conversation with him during the flight."

During the audience the fire alarm went off and the Palace had to be evacuated. King Harald, Lithuania's President and Queen Sonja who was present as well were taken to a safe place by the royal police escort.
It was caused by an overheated battery. No one was injured.

Today, King Harald and Queen Sonja visited Modum.
kongehuset.no - Aktiv som eldre
Google Translation
They visited four lively 100-year-olds. The visit took place in Vikersund, the four talked about how it is to be so old in Modum and what the community does for the seniors (Modum municipality has invested in active elderly for many years and has an offer to the older generation that few other communities can match).
