I once came ever so close to getting there. But until I do (and I will), stuff like this incredible timelapse will just have to suffice:
Wowzers. And yes, you do need to look at it on the best possible screen, best possible youtube settings and with the best possible speakers, for the best possible experience.
This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, 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 (Nothern 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.
There is a map to follow here, should you want the full details of where, when and how.
