As I can't go on any of the trips I had planned this year — like most of us — I've decided to travel vicariously. Here's one wildlife photographer's four day adventure, off-grid in Norway.
Morten Hilmer is a staggeringly good wildlife photographer. If you're unfamiliar with him, I urge you to subscribe to his YouTube channel and follow him on Instagram. Hilmer is a Danish photographer and much of his work is around Scandavia, one of my favorite parts of the world. He is somewhat of a nomad too, with expertise in surviving in the wilderness and camping in testing conditions. In this video, he is doing just that, solo, at the Snøhetta area in Dovre, Oppland. I stayed a little south of there, half an hour away from Rondane National Park and the area is as beautiful as it is brutal.
This video is so serene and relaxing that I gladly watched the whole thing from start to finish without looking away. I just wish I could go back there. So sit back and enjoy as Hilmer takes you through the Norwegian mountains and then add Norway to your list of travel destinations when it's safe to do so!
