Need A Good Reason To Visit Norway? This Stunning Timelapse Video Should Do The Trick.

Breathtaking countryside sunset in Valdres, Norway

I’m always amazed at the amount of time and effort that goes into creating timelapse videos like this one from Rustad Media. The stunning scenes captured here cover all 19 of Norway’s counties, from the fjords of the Southwest all the way up to the moon-like landscapes of the Northeast.


In all, the Rustad Media team traveled 15,000 km (nearly 10,000 miles!) over a period of 5 months to bring this project to life. The stops on their journey included some of the most scenic places in the entire country, such as the archipelago of Lofoten and the 1,982 foot granite cliff known as Preikestolen (pictured below).

If you’re like me, you probably don’t know much about Norway. So take a minute to learn more here. I promise it will be worth your time!
