This Is What It Looks Like When You Fly Into The Extreme Arctic Circle

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.
