Three reels of film with intertitles which document a family holiday to Norway.


Patriarch Moses Nightingale is joined by some of his relatives on the cruise ship SS Orford as it visits the fjords, countryside and settlements of Norway. The excursions are done on foot, by train and by car. The film concentrates heavily on the landscape of the country, although it does contain some shots of the holidaymakers visiting local markets and relaxing on deck.
