This Unique View of a Norwegian Fjord Is Spectacular

Fjords are narrow and elongated sea drains surrounded by steep land on all sides. They lend their name to Fjord Norway, the western part of Norway, which is replete with stunning landscapes, diverse wildlife and thriving communities. Fjords formed as glaciers cut into the landscape over millions of years. They now form ideal grounds for fishing, kayaking, camping, and extreme adventure sports such as base-jumping, as seen in this video. Watch base jumpers descend a fjord with breathtaking precision.

The spectacular natural beauty of the fjords has survived due to regulations aimed at providing long-term protection for the local environment. Learn about a similar effort in British Columbia to preserve the home of the rare Kermode bear.
