2013 – Mission: Northern Norway
Mission: Northern Norway (Oppdrag Nord-Norge) is an NRK1 television series in which 9 extreme sports athletes travel by boat, through extraordinary surroundings, in beautiful, wild Northern Norway.
Captain Mads Bækkelund and his boat Fjord Visjon carry the athletes from Tromsø to Lyngen, continuing south to Senja, Andørja and Vesterålen, before ending the trip in Steigen. Underway, the elements of this harsh environment, from the freezing wind and water, enormous waves, and high peak powder, provide plenty of challenging conditions for the athletes as they attempt to realize their dreams. We’ve been fortunate to be part of this project, providing the team with lavvos, tents and sleeping bags.
