The Disney movie, Frozen, captured the hearts of many, young and old, this past winter. The highest grossing Disney movie of all time, even breaking The Lion King, at a breathtaking one billion dollars made in the box office; not including all the Frozen merchandize that barely stays on the shelves at stores. Norwegian inspired royal families are the main characters in the movie, with Anna and Elsa ruling the kingdom of Arendelle.
Arendelle is actually based on a real place. The town of Arundel in Norway seems to be where the movie takes place. The town of Arundel sits on a port of water as did Arendelle in Frozen. Arundel also has a castle that resembles the one in the movie, Frozen.
Arundel truly looks like a magical place, nestled in the green mountains of Norway. The culture in Arundel is similar to what you see in the movie; a town that is very close and takes pride in tradition. Arundel has festivals to embrace the Scandinavian pride everyone has, with people who dress up in medieval wear and ride horses in knights' armor.
The weather in Norway is pretty similar to the animated movie's name...frozen. Norway is so close to the North Pole, that the weather is very cold most of the year. Maybe not quite enough for a crazy ice storm that freezes the harbor, but still, very chilly. Long sleeved dresses and capes to keep warm, like the ones Anna and Elsa wore, are a complete necessity if you ever wish to visit the icy oasis of Arundel.
Traveling on boat is suggested if you ever want to visit this Scandinavian village. A huge harbor to travel around allows for magnificent views of the gorgeous piece of land, and you can travel how all the guests to Elsa's coronation did. Back a hundred years ago, this was the main source of transportation for trade, and still is the main source for a lot of importing and exporting.
Arundel is the perfect place to visit if you are wishing to take a Frozen vacation.
