As founder of the Viking Suns, I am also a Norwex consultant. What is really exciting about these products, beyond their chemical-free cleaning properties, is that the company originated in Norway and still has its head office there! Read about my story here and browse the catalog here.
Another locally-based company with Viking roots, is our Icelandic all natural skincare family-run business Siglarr Viking Naturals that creates all their products by hand. You can read more about them and their products here.
And what fun to find out that some of our local eateries have familial ties to Iceland! For example, on 5th Street in Courtenay we have the Cornerstone Cafe and Taphouse. To read more about their offerings (food, drink and events), click here.
Sarah Hagen, Comox Valley born and raised, is also half Norwegian! It has been said about her performances that “…it was immediately apparent that this would be a piano concert beyond the norm.“ – and I agree! To find out when Sarah is performing at a venue near you, click here.
Lyle Carlstrom, partner of Old House Law and Notary Public in Courtenay, is proud of his Swedish roots and has traced his ancestors back to 1080! To find out more about Lyle and Old House Law and Notary Public, click here.
