Honningsvåg Airport, Valan, is one of the most northernmost airports in the world. Sitting at the very tippy-top of Norway, it resembles a frozen wasteland for much of the year. Doubly so on the very last day before the winter solstice. Which makes flying into it a surreal, otherworldly experience.
When you try to land your Snow Speeder at the Ice Base on Hoth, this is exactly what it looks like.
UPDATE: Unfortunately it appears as if the original video has been removed. I've replaced it with a similar, if lower-but-still-good-quality video. If the original pops back up somewhere, I'll throw it back in.
