“There were some difficulties with the drone used to capture the aerial footage – it didn’t like being that far north and ended up nearly crashing a couple of times because of compass problems.”

The vide has since received rave reviews online, and Peter added: “I think people really enjoy seeing such a remote and beautiful environment from a different perspective.”
