Video: Snowboarding in a Total Solar Eclipse

As I'm sure many of you know, last Friday a total solar eclipse occurred over Europe, bringing some unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for those who had the opportunity to witness it. In this video, one adventurous person trekked out into a remote region of Svalbard in Norway to capture the eclipse on video and then snowboard down a mountain while it was still taking place. His excitement over what he is seeing is endearing to say the least, and the landscape that he chose to shoot his video in is spectacular. This is a great example of someone taking advantage of the moment and creating a wonderful adventure for himself. One that he'll remember throughout his lifetime.

Video: Svalbard - A Journey to the High Arctic

Here's a wonderful video that transports viewers to the Svalbard, a remote island located off the coast of Norway above the Arctic Circle. The seven minute clip takes us through the stunning landscapes that exist there, giving us a glimpse of the beautiful scenery, remote places, and wonderful wildlife that lives in this amazing place. Svalbard is a popular destination for those who want to spot polar bears in the wild, but it is not a place for travelers who can't endure cold weather and demanding conditions. Those who can however, are treated to a pristine wilderness that rewards them with beauty at every turn.
