“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.
Bodø is home to the world’s strongest maelstrom Saltstraumen. The largest city in the county of Nordland is also just a boat ride away from both Moskenes in Lofoten and the old trading post at Kjerringøy.
