climbing mount Skåla


Mt. Skåla is Norway’s toughest uphill climb. In June 2018, Danny scaled the mountain alongside longtime friend Lucas Risinger. Together, they carried three special cameras on the journey to bring the beautiful scenery back down with them.

Full Frame Timelapse

In a series of timelapse videos, a sea of clouds churns through the fjords of Norway’s Jostedalsbreen National Park. Taken just days after the summer solstice, the Northern sun flies a nearly horizontal path towards the horizon.

If you want to get to the top in life, you have to be prepared for some uphill battles. To reach the top of Skåla (1848m), you won’t find a longer uphill stretch in the whole of Norway.
