Watch This Paraglider Soar Through the Aurora Borealis
Yes, this is a video sponsored by Red Bull, but it’s a really cool video sponsored by Red Bull.
Spanish acrobatic paraglider pilot Horacio Llorens took this amazing flight beneath the waves of the Aurora Borealis in Trømso, Norway.
He faced a dark winter with very little sun and nights with sub-zero temperatures to paraglide here, but you can see why it’s all worth it for him as he soars and spins against the spectacular backdrop of the Northern Lights.
“Living is impossible without flying for me,” he says.
The only drawback is that there’s no first-person GoPro view of the flight – but many commenters on the video point out that it was probably too dark for a GoPro camera to work. The technology will get there one day, hopefully soon.
