Bremanger is a small municipality in Fjord Norway with around 4000 inhabitants, situated between the open sea to the west and the fjords of Norway to the east and south.
The Bremanger area is where mountains meet the sea, often in a dramatic way. None more so than Hornelen, Europe's highest sea cliff. In the music video, you can see a wingsuit-jump from Hornelen's summit. Hiking to this 860-metre high point will take you around four hours each way. If that seems a bit too strenuous, there are many other options; Hiking trails abound in the entire region.
The Vingen rock carvings were discovered in 1912 and forms Norway's second largest field of rock carvings with some 2000 individual petroglyphs. Up to 7000 years old, they show deer, other animals, abstract geometric patterns and even some human figures.
The music video
The music video "All I Do" by Madcon is produced by Svein Arild Vatsø and directed by Bjørn Myreze. It was financed by contributions from the Bremanger municipality and local businesses.
