With two days of baking, crafting, immersive foreign cuisine and holiday traditions awaiting them, guests arrived at the fourth annual Nordic Cool: Holiday Weekend last Friday evening – tucked away from the outside world in the Norwegian Village of Skogfjorden at Concordia Language Villages in Bemidji.

“This program pulls in all the Nordic villages, so it’s special because it’s like taking a little tour of Scandinavia,” Alexander Arguelles, a group director of Concordia Language Villages’ Immersion Language Programs, said.
