A Norwegian glider has shot some incredible footage of him soaring and swooping around the peaks of Romsdal in Norway this September.
The footage shows the glider circling the majestic Trollveggen (The Troll Wall) mountain. 
"It's better to fly in the mountains because there's usually more lift there," Arne Martin Güettler told The Local. "The wind and thermal updrafts mean we can gain altitude and stay up there for hours. The longest I've done is close to nine hours."
