Magic Of Norway's Natural Wonders Captured In Stunning Time-Lapse Video

Tens of thousands of images, taken during a 10,000-mile, five-month journey, make up this one time-lapse video capturing the most magical corners of Norway.

And it certainly seems like it was worth the effort.

The stunning short film, created by Rustad Media, was made to "show the variety of Norway," the filmmakers wrote on YouTube. Their work features "everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime."

The filmmakers are said to have traveled to all of Norway's 19 counties to create the piece, journeying "from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast."

The video is certainly worth five minutes of your time (or 10, if you watch it twice). Watch it above and get transported. Just be warned: You might suddenly be overwhelmed by a strange desire to buy a plane ticket to a certain Scandinavian destination.
