Tourists love visiting Scandinavia during the summer for its endless days, but Nordic winters have their bright spots. My Norwegian cousin recently sent me a Vimeo link to an amazing time-lapse video taken near Ålesund, along Norway’s west coast. My family’s original Moe farm is “just down the fjord”.
The video was produced by Stian Rekdal.
There are lots of other aurora borealis videos out on the web, but I love the combination of city lights, ice, snow and northern lights in this one. Take a few minutes to forget about politics and world news.
It’s best viewed “fullscreen” and in a darkened room. Enjoy.
I volunteer to lead NCPR’s trip to Norway in deepest winter!
