Social Distancing in Western Norway


Dronie from the North


As the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak became a worldwide pandemic in early 2020, "Social Distancing" became the norm as hundreds of millions of people around the world were forced to isolate themselves to stop the spread of the disease.  During these dark times, solo dronies became a means for drone pilots to safely communicate with the rest of humanity and show their solidarity.  In this piece, top AirVuz contributor PilotViking and his canine friend show us his corner of the world in Western Norway.

Preikestolen: Norway's Pulpit Rock


The Pulpit Rock

Grim Berge...

The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) is a major tourist attraction of Rogaland in the southwestern corner of Norway. The top of the rock, which is roughly 600 meters (2000 ft) above the base, is essentially a flat table from which tourists can view the Lysefjord fjord, one of Norway's biggest attractions.  Top contributor Grim Berge used a drone to treat us to a spectacular aerial view of this magnificent rock, the shooting location ("disguised" to resemble New Zealand) for a key scene in Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018).  

Geirangerfjorden: Seven Sisters Waterfall


The Seven Sisters Waterfall


The Seven Sisters waterfalls is a natural phenomenon which has to be seen to be believed.  It is a system of seven related waterdalls on the northern side of Geirangerfjorden, in Møre og Romsdal county of Western Norway. The tallest of the falls has an enormous free fall of 250 meters (820 ft), making it one of the highest waterfalls of Norway.  Contributor Aerial Norway created this epic aerial video of the falls, taken in early summer when the snow melting from the mountain peaks swell the flow over the falls.

The city of Stavanger in southern Norway is a prime port of call for cruise ships sailing through the Scandinavian fjords, one of the world's major cruise ship markets.  In 2016, this Nordic port in Rogalund County handled a cruise ship nearly every other day, amounting to about 300k passengers over the course of the year.  In this spectacular drone video, top contributor and drone pilot Brent De Bleser captures the hustle and bustle of this busy port as these floating behemoths ply its icy waters.  

BASE Jumping Pulpit Rock


Base Jumping in Norway


Kjerag Mountain in southwestern Norway offers one of the best BASE jumping spots anywhere on earth - from the mountain top it's a nearly 1k meter (3.2k ft) vertical drop to the Lysefjord fjord below.  Pilot Viking filmed an epic BASE jumping session from this hallowed spot (called Preikestolen or "Pulpit Rock"), using a drone to capture some VERY brave BASE jumpers plying their craft.  If that isn't enough, it's got some professional pyrotechnics thrown in to make things even more interesting! 

Stave Church in Fjordane County


Stave Church in Norway - 4K


In this video, contributor and pilot PilotViking treats us to a bird's eye view of a stave church, a once common church design in northern and western Europe.  Thousands of these wooden churches were built over a wide area, mostly in the late Middle Ages.  Alas, while they were easier and cheaper to build than stone churches, they did not have the same longevity: very few remain and virtually all of them are located in Norway.  This is the Hopperstad Church in Vik, a town in Fjordane Couty of western Norway.

Take a cruise along the coast of Norway in this epic first person view (FPV) piece by AirVuz contributor fure_fpv.  Using a long-range setup, he takes an 8 km (roughly 5 mi.) flight on the coast of the island of Godøya.  Godøya is part of the municipality of Ålesund in Møre og Romsdal, one of the main counties of the official Western Norway region.  The video features some excellent footage skimming along the mountains which run parallel to the coastline.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in January, 2021.  

Over Vestland County


Somewhere in the Mountains


Check out these beautiful drone views of iconic Norwegian scenery, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot dariusly.  The video was shot over Vestland County, which was created at the beginning of 2020 with the consolidation of Hordaland and most of Sogn og Fjordane Counties.  Vestland is the heart of the official region of Western Norway, the country's most popular for tourism.  Its territory includes most of the country's most well-known fjords as well as the city of Bergen, Norway's second-largest after Oslo.

While Norway is likely one of the most-droned countries, the vast majority of the aerial footage captured here is on gimbal-stabilized aerial videography platforms like the DJI Mavic series.  Far less common is a very different type of aerial footage: that from first person view (FPV) mini-drones.  Case in point is this FPV piece from OMJ FPV, whose highly cinematic footage from the area around Lake Lovatnet in Vestland County in Western Norway earned him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2020.
