[Video] Soaring the Mountains of Norway

I would like to share with you a spectacular HD soaring video from the Norwegian mountains last week.

The video was made at the autumn soaring camp at Bjorli, Norway. Even though the great wave conditions we were hoping for never materialized, it was soarable every day the entire week, with some good thermals most days, and ridge lift and weak wave the other days.

The highlight for me was two days when I was able to soar down the Romsdal valley, which features some of the most spectacular mountains in Norway, including the famous Trollveggen (Troll Wall), the highest vertical cliff in Europe. The view there was absolutely stunning, and I hope my video can do it some justice.

Editors Note: "Because of its unique mountainous terrain, [Bjorli] is the filming location for one scene in the Harry Potter movie 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,' which came out in July 2009 in the United Kingdom and United States." — Wikipedia

I started gliding four years ago. I've used Condor extensively for training, which has resulted in a fast learning curve. Won Norwegian sports class nationals in 2012. Became part owner of a Discus bT later that year, and since then have travelled around in Norway to do cross country flying, particularly in mountain terrain, and in 2013 did the most total km on OLC Norway.I like to document my flights with photos and videos. Videos can be seen at my YoutTube channel.
