At the end of December, renowned adventure photographer Chris Burkard released a trailer for his upcoming film “Under an Arctic Sky.”
The trailer didn’t give us much to go on, but it’s essentially the story of Burkard and crew undertaking a trip to the Lofoten Islands and getting derailed by a 25-year storm. Having to turn back to mainland Iceland, they brave the storm and its 160 mph winds. That’s when the fun began.
With the storm still happening, they wanted to trek through harsh Icelandic roads to find the storm-produced surf. And much to their luck, after some extremely arduous and life-threatening drives on impassable roads, they found the Northern Lights out to greet them in the bitter cold.
Mick Fanning also surfed under the Northern Lights last year, and the experience seems like one of the most breathtaking things one can do in our space.
Even Burkard himself, who has seen more that nature has to offer than most of us will in a lifetime, noted about the incredible sight, “This is maybe one of the most insane things I’ve ever seen in my life.”
If someone like Burkard can say that, you know it’s got to be something amazing. “Under an Arctic Sky” will tell this tale and we personally cannot wait for more information about its release.
