About the Comox Valley Viking Suns
Comox Valley Viking Suns is a culture and business networking club for friends and family with an interest in Scandinavia, specifically Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. This is a place where we celebrate and engage in the culture, practice our language, try new recipes and share business / study / travel stories. We are the only Scandinavian Club in the Comox Valley and are passionate about our journey to understand our heritage and expand our knowledge of the region.
Short-term we are increasing membership and awareness of the club; long-term we plan to connect local Valley businesses and residents with opportunities in Scandinavian and visiting Scandinavians with tips and secrets on how best to appreciate the our Valley.
Why start this club? I have strong ties to Norway as the birthplace of my dad and home to all of my paternal family and this club helps to keep my heritage alive. I have worked and studied in Oslo, Bergen, Lillesand and Kristiansand, and made many trips to northern Norway, mainly to Vengsøya – where my family first established roots in the early 1900’s from nearby villages.
Over the years, I have grown to appreciate the beauty in the differences between Norway and Canada. This club seeks to unite those with similar experiences or those who would like to have similar experiences. Please contact us for more information.
