Welcome to life at the edge of the world in northern Norway

Following on from our intimate portraits of the people who bring Spain to life, our new series of films took us to the far reaches of northern Norway – to satisfy our curiosity about the people who call these remote and impossibly magical landscapes home, while remembering that, above all,  We Are Human. There are many fjords in Norway – but we wanted to put faces to them.

In this trailer for the films we’ll be releasing over the coming weeks, we introduce you to Nord-Norge – a region only eight hundred miles from our London office. A place where supermarket meal deals, irritating traffic jams, and trendy pop-ups seem like a distant memory.

Tune in next Thursday for the first full instalment of the series, and meet the dogs who dragged us around the country’s snowy north.

Most of us encounter Norway through TV box sets and boxy knitwear. In Norway’s north, home to fewer than half a million people spread across its vast and mythical bulk, life is very different – brilliant white in winter, and deeply verdant during the long, bright summer, where sleds and boats take over from cars and subways. This remoteness is exactly what drew our curiosity about the ‘land of the midnight sun,’ asking ourselves: can a  place that looks so dramatic on our Instagram feeds live up to the reality? And what is it like to actually live here?

In these films, you’ll meet some of the fascinating people who have made a life in this remote part of the world – including Borge, an arctic explorer and crafter of enviable seaside structures, as well as Torkill, who keeps the tradition of dog-sledding alive and well.
