In recent years, Norway has really turned to as a tourist destination for people all around the world. Norway is seen as a peaceful and safe place to go on vacation, and many come to see the beautiful mountains and fjords. Some tourist destinations appear to have an almost magnetic attraction for visitors from abroad. Norwegians are at all been a bit surprised by the large rush, and the question is, how long can this go well?

Odda is a small municipality in western Norway with spectacular fjords and mountains, and Trolltunga is one of those mountains that leans out over a fjord several hundred meters below. The flow of selfietourists who wanted to visit Trolltunga took off in 2016. The same applied to the number of call-outs for the local Red Cross crews.

In this programme we get to know how things are in a small municipality which is flooded with tourists and how the local rescue guys in Red Cross night and day must scramble when the alarm sounds and tourists are in an emergency.
