“Fly” across northern Norway in these fantastic videos
Slow tv has become a concept which has grown to be surprisingly popular in Norway. The Bergen Line, Hurtigruten and Skibladner are all attractions one has had the opportunity to witness minute by minute on the national broadcaster, NRK.
Thanks to Youtube user, Steffen Nordahl, you can now experience northern parts of Norway from above. Steffen has uploaded two videos, recorded from the cockpit of two of the flights of Nordic’s biggest regional airline, Widerøe’s.
In the first video you can enjoy the view from the cockpit of one of Widerøe’s Dash 8 airplanes as it takes of from Sandnessjøen and flies all the way and touches ground in Brønnøysund.
In the second video, we see the plane take off from Mo i Rana, pass above Norway’s second biggest glacier, Svartisen, before it lands in Bodø.
Widerøe has a history that dates back to 1934, which makes it Norway’s oldest airline company. The airline company plays a leading role in the development of flights in the districts of Norway, and flies to more than twice as many airports in Norway as any competing airline.
Few Norwegian towns and cities are so close to the wilderness as Bodø. Here activities under the northern lights are right on your doorstep.
Has the unique atmosphere of the northern winter ever been captured as spectacularly on film? Goosebumps guaranteed.
