Norway – A Time-Lapse Adventure


This stunning time-lapse video is the result of a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 mi) road trip and tens of thousands of images taken over five months. Covering all of Norway’s 19 counties, this video takes us from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.
