Norway’s public broadcaster NRK has a spectacular timelapse video up on their website showing reindeer migrating to an Arctic island…. on a boat!
The article is in Norwegian, but from what I can gather (thanks to Google Translate) freelance photographer Jan R. Olsen took the photographs on the island of Kågen in Troms county in Norway’s Arctic.
But why by boat?
According to the owner of the reindeer, the animals were tired which is why they started barging them to the island.
If any of our Norwegian site vistors have more information on the video, feel free to add it in the comments section below.
And now, see the video here for yourself:
