Happy New Year from Viking!

Happy new year from the staff of Viking magazine! While 2013 may have just started, our staff has been busy planning our editorial line-ups for months. We're excited about what's in store this year.

This year's travel issue—a January tradition—has already arrived in many members' mailboxes. In it you'll find an article on Norway's famous Hurtigruten coastal steamer. You'll also find ideas for urban adventures in Oslo, Norway's capital city. At the request of one of our readers, we've created a guide to alternative accommodations in Norway—think big savings! And finally, we'll inspire you to plan a getaway to pursue a passion—such as rosemaling, woodcarving or genealogy—and give you the resources to get started.

 In February, in honor of Valentine's Day, we'll celebrate Love by highlighting four notable Nordic couples. Adventure lovers will want to read about Les Stroud, aka TV's "Survivorman," and his 10-day experience in the Norwegian mountains.

We'll share a conversation with Norway's internationally acclaimed crime writer, Jo Nesbø, in March, as well as Easter brunch recipes with a decidedly Nordic twist.

What would you like to see in Viking in 2013? While our calendar is brimming with ideas, we'd still like to hear from you. Share your comments below or email your suggestions to vikingeditor@mspcustomcontent.com.
