Norway is one of the most unique incredible rugged
countries in the whole world.
I’m home in New York making this video about my favorite place in the
Norway and it starts raining.
The rain is actually very fitting for making a video
on Norway because Norway is one of the wettest countries in the whole world.
I’m Eric Conover and this is a video Journal
of my travels in life here in New York.
Recently I just got back from a week-long trip to Norway with Paul and
Shark they’re an Italian quilting
company and I was filming a campaign
testing out their 777 jacket over 7 days and 7 activities in Norway.
他们正在测试777夹克 历时七天 有7个活动
In this video I made a list
of the most incredible locations in Norway that I saw while
testing out this jacket.

Without further ado these are the most incredible places in Norway
you have to see to believe.
The first location is the Nigardsbreen Glacier.
This glacier lives about 19 miles north
of the village Guap.
The Nigardsbreen Glacier is actually an arm of the largest glacier
in continental Europe called the
Jostedalsbreen Glacier to get to the glacier a
small boats will transport you to the face
with you across the palest most
turquoise blue glacier water you have ever seen
in your whole life.
From the forests to the base
of the glacier you have about a 30 minute hike.
Once you get to the base of the glacier
you’re kitted out with crampons and ice pick and a harness.
你就得装备上鞋底钉 拿上冰爪 系上安全带
It is impossible to climb ice without crampons and they
actually come with the guide and
I’ll have all that information down below.
Once you start climbing it’s about eight hours
in total from the top to the
bottom of this glacier hike was one
of if not the most defining travel
experience I’ve had in my whole life.
It’s one thing to see it but to actually hear the pieces of ice the size
of buildings moving and breaking and it
felt like a living of things its massive massive living things.
If you want to climb this glacier you
have to act fast because in a matter of
a few short years this glacier won’t even be here.
Where was it before how much farther out?
2001 that all the way to the angular bitches like.
How much longer will this be here for?
20 years 20 years yeah you heard that 20 years at
–20年吧 –20年 哇 你们听到了么
the fact that these aren’t gonna be around
in 20 years you know when I’m a
middle-aged guy this might not be here.
If you want to ever climb a glacier do
it don’t wait get out here climb
就赶快行动起来 不要犹豫 马上来这里吧
the glacier we’re halfway up now and
I’ll see you at the top.
The next location is the Langfossen Falls.
which translates to long at
waterfall, this waterfall is less
of an activity and more of just an attraction.
I mean you’re driving down the highway
out of nowhere you hear this noise this
rumbling noise then you see the mist,
you turn the corner and you see the largest
most menacing waterfall on earth.
This waterfall is over 2,000 feet high the
world waterfall database declared this waterfall
to be one of the best in the world.
That’s got to tell you something.
I drove past this waterfall on my ways to
Voss where I did some whitewater
river kayaking, Langfossen is the perfect
place if you’re on a long road trip in Norway –
just pull over to the side of
the road have some food enjoy the beauty and just kind
of take it in because it
is quite good sight.
The next location pause the video try to pronounce this
word (Atlanterhavsvegen) yeah there’s very very long the region
Atlanterhavsvegen 对 这是个非常长的地名
word translates to Atlantic Ocean Road.
Now it is known as the world’s most
dangerous road just because during the wintertime there’s very strong storms
that go through this area.
When I did this drive was actually a beautiful sunny day
so I think it to experience it in the storm and
the craziness but still I could imagine, it
can be pretty menacing
in the storm, it is eight total bridges long and eight
thousand two hundred and seventy-four meters
and this is the biggest tip of
this video if you are going
to Norway you make videos and you make photos
invest in the drone.
The drone is not one way
to really really see this country which brings us
to our next location.
Deep in the mountains
of western Norway, lies Trollstiger Road.
Trollstiger translates directly to trolls latter,
Trollstiger is a visual beast.
I have never seen a place that was
so won a major stomach drop.
About to break down that steep its bite course
in the whole world, this is one of those life
moments where you feel so alive, but
at the same time you’re like should I be doing this.
Just because of how steep the road is if you’re going down that road on a bike in you’re
at the edge and you make a wrong turn you’re
going over the edge and you’re falling thousands of feet down to the ground.
It is a straight cliff drop down
to the valley, this road is the hardest and
highest bike climb
in the entire world, twelve point two kilometers of this ride
is at a grueling 7% incline.
The view from the top is just you can’t even put
into words how breathtaking and just
bashed this view is off into the distance.
I biked down at the bike let me just
tell you the flight.
Norway is hands-down the most extreme place I’ve ever been
the landscape is just I…look at this
There were certain points where I hit 60
kilometers per hour. I cannot highly recommend enough going
to this place it is breathtaking
in every aspect of the word.
Literally it will take your breath away especially
if you were biking up it or you’re biking
down Trollstiger Road is a must
if you’re going to Northwestern Norway you
have to see this place, go on up
on a bike is the most grueling thing I’ve
ever experienced but going down shore feels good.
The next location on our list I have never seen anything like this
it is something out of a novel or a film what I’m
about to show you it will blow your
mind, the next location and probably the most
interesting place on this list is the world’s strongest world,
Located in the Northland this is
the strongest tidal current in the entire
world, these whirlpools were so large
that they could swallow boats.
We were to get close enough to the whirlpool
you could actually feel it dragging the boat
into it up to 400 million tons
of seawater forced their way through a
three kilometer long and only 150
meter wide straight every six hours with the
time, water speeds reached 37 km/h at the peak
of the world pool, but no really
I’ve never seen currents this
fast and there’s actually whirlpools like when
you flush a toilet that’s what we have except times a
thousand, let’s go.
In no prove the whirlpools themselves are huge some can
be up to 10 meters
in diameter and reach 5 meters deep in the heart of the vortex
five meters deep.
Now on the data I was there they were not nearly that big but
I couldn’t even imagine seeing
a whirlpool that big and that powerful
because they do get that big.
When I was first going to it I was pretty skeptical
that it was kind of you know it was a hoax
it was folklore built up
over time, but it’s the real deal, to get to the world
for, you leave from the town
of Buda, You suit up in a full-on survival suit
and when we were on the dock I was kind
of thinking to myself and wondering why
are we suit up in survival suits for the Arctic
like these suits are no joke
the heavy gear survival you’re out there
in the middle of the ocean waiting for
something that gets you suit.
From the town it’s about a 20-minute boat ride
through some of the most beautiful landscapes
of mountains that are meeting
to see that I have ever seen.
My guys was a story about Navy SEALs who went in to
test the whirlpool, they had air
masks they had full wetsuits they went under
for two minutes and when they
finally resurfaced, they were a half a mile down
the river, that’s how powerful these world was on.
When I was there I was even
thinking about going swimming I’m
a strong swimmer but not strong enough
swimmer for the world in Norway.
Rounding out the list of incredible things in places
in Norway is the Midnight Sun, the strangest thing was
watching the Sun go down and
having it just hover right above the horizon.
It was set about midnight just kind
of hang there and then it would start to rise at
1:00 a.m. The Midnight Sun is
a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer
month in places north
of the Arctic Circle, but actually the Midnight Sun can
occur almost 50 miles away
from the circle but not quite as high.
Your body clock is so thrown
out of whack because imagine you are as tired as can be, but
it is light out it’s the strangest
just most bizarre thing, it’s very hard to
sleep in Norway it is right now 12:30
in the morning it’s June the 11th, so it’s
almost the first day of summer which is the longest day
of the year. I haven’t
been sleeping the past two days just
because it doesn’t get dark it’s always
light out I mean look
at this, the Sun just dips down low enough below the
horizon where it’s
like a sunset for two hours straight and then it pops right
back up at about two maybe 145, real strange but kind
然后它就直接升起了 就在凌晨两点 或者1点45分
of cool and there you
have it that is my list
of the most incredible places I saw Norway on my last trip there.
