Sailing in Stavanger, a North European adventure. VIDEO

This video was shot during a sailing trip in the Stavanger region in southern Norway. It features the sail boat Barba and her crew on a typical adventure, exploring nature and interacting with the elements in spectacular surrounds.

The journey began in the Kvitsøy archipelago with seal encounters and diving. Then we set off into the legendary Lysefjord, where we climbed the Flørli stairs and later completed a successful paraglider flight off one of the best-known landmarks in Norway, the 1000 meter tall Kjerag massif.
