Video: GoPro Awards - Aurora Borealis

A couple of weeks back I told you about a new program from GoPro called the GoPro Awards, in which the company would actually pay up to $5 million per year for content that we capture using their cameras. The first videos that are part of the GoPro Awards series have begun to trickle out online, and this two-minute clip is one of them. While the exact location isn't mentioned, it appears as if it is in Iceland or perhaps Scandinavia, where the Aurora Borealis – aka the Northern Lights – are on full display. It is a beautiful video to say the least, and certainly deserving of some attention from GoPro. If this is what we can expect from the award winners, we're all going to be in for a treat.

Want to have an opportunity to see the Northern Lights for yourself? Mountain Travel Sobek's Best of Norway trip will allow you to do just that. The 11-day itinerary gives you taste of everything the country has to offer, including hiking in the mountains, cruising on fjords, and yes, the Aurora Borealis. It is definitely a great way to explore this setting for yourself.
