BEST Soccer Football Field in the WORLD! – Henningsvær, Norway

BEST Soccer Football Field in the WORLD!  – Henningsvær, Norway


– Have you ever wondered what would happen if you put a football
field on it’s own island in the middle of the heart
of the Norwegian Sea? I hadn’t either until I heard about it. And I decided I had to go
see what it was all about. My name is Cody Buffinton and I’m an adventure
seeking world traveler, exploring the incredible
country of Norway. But before we can reach
this group of islands where the what might be the
world’s coolest football field, we have to make a quick stop at a place that looks like the set
of an epic fantasy movie. (“We are Legends 5” by Rannar Sillard) Just a quick two kilometer hike. And we cross these super helpful planks covering the soaked ground. Then just shortly after
we come to a clearing where we can see the overlooking viewpoint that we’re looking for. We just made it down to the beach now. And we didn’t realize, you
actually go down to the beach and then up the hill to
get to the viewpoint. There’s actually a lot of
people camping down here as well which is pretty smart. You can just come down
here, camp and chill. And there’s a good amount of people here. It’s almost like it’s own camping site. (“Keep You Near 3” by Niklas Gustavsson) It’s like the vikings just
came and settled here. There’s all these little
tents. (chuckling) Everyone’s settling here. This is amazing. This one’s probably the best one. It’s like a full on teepee
tent, with it’s own campfire. Baaaa (sheep bleats) So now that we’ve made it
pretty much the two kilometers to the beach, I didn’t realize that it’s probably another two
kilometers up to the top. When they tell you it’s two kilometers, it’s I guess just to the beach. Extremely sore and cold up here, but I can tell this view’s
about to be worth it. I think Josh is almost dead. Before this whole hike,
I ate a whole pizza. Josh didn’t. So I’ve got like all
the energy in the world. Josh, not so much. – I actually, to be honest,
I was trying to give up. I thought, I don’t think I can do it. I never once said that to a hike. I never once said I’m
not gonna do the hike. I really felt like I was gonna pass out. Never once done that. I didn’t realize how legit
energized you can get off carbs. – [Cody] Yeah, I know. – Like I had good protein. Yeah, this is fine. – [Cody] But you don’t wanna
eat like salad before a hike. You don’t wanna do that. – Yeah, like I feel dizzy and everything. – [Cody] What is this
world we’ve come up to. I think we’ve gone too high. We’re gonna have to hang
out on this part right here until it clears. It’s kinda been the problem
the past couple days here is it gets, the clouds
and fog get really low. So a lot of the mountains are covered and you can’t see the views from up top. The sun is covered by this haze right now. So it’s like a giant, just
a giant orb in the sky. It’s pretty interesting,
like if there was smoke like sometimes in forest fires, they have this really weird haze. That’s what it looks like right now. The sun is covered. It is freezing and I’m
still looking for puffins. I haven’t seen any puffins yet. I’m still trying, still trying
to find one here on my hike. (“The Lost Cities”) – Oh yes. Dude without this, I swear, without this I don’t even know if I
can make it to the rest. Even if we could actually get up there. Really. – Just a couple Skyrs worth of boys. How do you feel, better? – Getting there. – It’s like, it’s like
those snickers commercials. (laughs) You’re not you when you’re hungry, Josh. Have a Skyr. We decided to hike down due to the low visibility from up top and head up further north
to the football field. In this small fishing village the population is a little under 500 and has recently gained many new tourists due to it’s beautiful layout and it’s popularity on social media. We have made it to the
soccer/football field depending on what country you’re in. And it is beautiful. It is kinda like a moody day. It’s overcast here, but it
makes it look so much better. Look at the clouds on that
mountain in the background. That is amazing. These little wooden stalls right here, I believe if they’re like the other ones all around Lofoten, they
are used to dry cod heads. Cods are a popular fish
here that everyone catches, and they actually cut off
the head and the body, and they just dry the heads. And what they do is they
actually, once it’s dry, they crush it up into protein. And they send it out to Africa. So they keep the bodies here,
and they send the protein– it’s like a protein cod
head basically powder that goes out to Africa. Josh and I are being
challenged by this guy who is from Afghanistan but
living here in Norway now. He looks like a good soccer player. And he’s challenging us. Josh is right now trying to be the goalie. I’m gonna try next, see how I do. (Josh yells) (Cody laughs) – [Josh] Whoa, karate chop. Sorry. Here we go. – Aye. – Goal. (“Carnaval Para a Bala”
by Niklas Ahlstrom) – [Cody] With increasing popularity and it’s scenic backdrop, the European Soccer
Organization and Pepsi Max have filmed campaigns here as well. (“Carnaval Para A Bala”
by Niklas Ahlstrom) It’s a small field with
no stadium seating, but for the 500 residents,
it’s a perfect size. Now does this place flood when the big waves come in the winter? Well due to the surrounding
rocks and islands, most of the harsh waves
are actually stopped before they even get to this field. So if you’re in Lofoten, you have to see what could be the world’s
most amazing football field. Thank you guys for watching. If you’re interested in or
planning on going to Norway, I have a free travel guide video preview to get you started in the right direction and ease you’re planning headaches, so that you can start
enjoying these views as well. The link to the video to help
you plan your epic Norway trip is in the description as always. And until next time, explore the world. (“Carnaval Para A Bala”

  1. If you are interested in Norway or planning on coming to Norway I have a video to show you the 5 Things that you NEED to know before coming! Check it out here! https://bit.ly/2L3CFcm

  2. Wow, that's great footage. It's the most amazing and unusual with the cod head racks around the field. I enjoyed this.😀

  3. I remembered that last time i was at that soccer field i got a ball shot right in my head😂 not the best memories from there.

  4. Your vids are so much better then Josh's if you only put more of them out you could double your views and subs.

  5. Your video documentaries are truly professional. It was always my dream to some day visit Norway and you have given me a glimpse of what I have been missing. Thank You!

  6. Norway is certainly a very picturesque country with it's seemingly unspoiled ocean and mountain views. The beach in the drone shot at the end looks magnificent. That soccer field looks out of place and in the drone footage it doesn't even look real to me. It's gotta be the different shades of green and the straight lines with precise angles that appears so odd on that irregular grey rock in the middle of the ocean. Whatever it is, it's cool! Dammit Josh, you're a world adventurer dude, ya gotta shape up……haaahaha! I'm only bustin' your…you know. Lovin' this Norwegian series Cody! ……………………….PEACE!!

  7. so glad to see you enjoy your trip to Norway. when i see the fantastic videos you make, and the big smile that the Norwegian nature gives you, makes me proud to say that I am an Norwegian myself. glad you took your time to make these incredible videos so people form all over the world can enjoy it to. keep up the good work, and dont forget to soak inn all the beauty we´re so blessed to have in Norway. much love from your new Norwegian sub.

  8. HEY! Pretty sure I remember you coming to the viking museum when you were up here. I remember you talked about going to this football field : P

  9. If u wanna see Puffins u gotta go to an iland outside og Ålesund called Runde. There u can go and see "the bird mountain" or Fuglefjellet in norwegian. Idk how to translate it better then straight from noregian but if u can get a boat to see the wall (different) of birds from the sea you would see more then just from the side at the top. If Josh was ded there u gotta bring him to Kjerag. Worst hike Ive ever had😅

  10. You are so talented, like you get the perfect pictures and some awesome cinematic shots that just looks "gorgeus" correct me if I wrote that wrong, but you know what I was trying to say. I think you are the best vlogging / exploring channel on youtube

  11. 3:10
    Regarding the puffins…
    The issue is that a lot of sea birds are dying of due to having less access to food among other things…
    (And things like eating plastic making it harder for them to digest the food they do eat).

    4:41
    They're used to make stockfish.

  12. Dude, you are going to places where every one has been… you’re so naief with a camera, just focus on you’re drome and make money with that! FOCUS DUDE !!

  13. Hjeller or a Hjell (don't know if there is a english word for it) but they are all over the northen norway and in some places they still hang fish (Cod mainly but other type of fish can be hanged too) to dry, it will become what we called Dry fish or stockfish… can be eaten dry or soaked up.

    So not only the head is used 🙂 the clima up north is perfect for this type of production, its hanged during winter when there was no flies and stuff and it hanged to they where hard and dry ready for transport (no need for ice then hehe).

  14. Just awesome! Love your videos. What's the song called at 3:20, it's just amazing and I want to hear it everyday 🙂

  15. I guess puffins are not so much in that part of the Lofoten islands. To see more of the puffins you need to go further out to the other islands; Værøy and Røst.

  16. I live on the Lofoten island called Flakstad Island.
    0:57 oh Kvalvika is a normal family trio for me like everyone in Lofoten has been there. Or most have.

  17. WOW…cool place. Beaut video, well done. But your friend seriously needs to learn how not to kick a football like a girl! 😉
