Summer in Lofoten

haussmannvisuals

Top contributor haussmannvisuals created this stunning aerial tour of Norway's Lofoten Islands during the glorious summer months. The Lofotens are a chain of islands which lie of the coast of northern Norway, just within the Arctic Circle. For centuries, the islands were known for their cod fisheries, as giant schools of the fish come south from the Berents Sea to spawn off their shores. In more recent years, they have emerged as one of the up-and-coming travel destinations of Scandinavia. This video was a DVOW finalist in September, 2019.

The Lofoten Islands are a beautiful, yet dangerous place in winter. Becoming a more popular, more heavily traveled area of the world, tourism rates are starting to grow even in the cold season. With its beautiful Northern Lights, purple skies, and snow-covered, idyllic towns it is easy to see why. What you don’t see are the plethora of days below zero degrees with snow and ice storms.

The fishing village of Reine, Norway is located on the island of Moskenesøya in the Lofoten archipelago. Lying above the Arctic Circle you already know the tiny town, home to only 314 people, will be cold and feature some foreboding, fierce winds. That’s exactly what FPV pilot Fincky found when he traveled there with friends to grab some of the incredible views. Cold and windy as it was, it was certainly worth it as you’ll see in this beautiful, cinematic FPV video.
