Norway: Summer is on its way!

Beta Films...

While winter in Norway is not without its charm, the country truly comes to life during the summer, when the scenery becomes green and the days are interrupted by nights which only last a few hours.  In this drone video, Beta Films captures the magic of eastern Norway as the season turns to summer.  The video features epic bird's eye views of the areas north of the country's capital Oslo (not far from the border with neighboring Sweden to the east), Nevelfjell, Lillehammer, Mesnali, and more.
