Weekend TV: Nat Geo zooms in on Denmark

On Sunday, the fifth season of ‘Europe From Above’ featuring aerial footage from Denmark will air on National Geographic.

This weekend, National Geographic’s fifth series of Europe From Above will debut with an episode dedicated to Denmark and the Faroe Islands.

The episode features immersive aerial shots that zoom in on hidden Danish treasures spanning landscapes, cultural activities and architecture.

The footage includes a snow-clad Copenhagen during Christmas, a kayak procession on the canal during Santa Lucia, and Skovtårnet forest tower in Rønnede in South Zealand.

The trailer gives a flavour of the dizzying angles to expect from the high-altitude project, and teases: “explore the traditions that make us who we are and experience our neighboring countries’ incredible landscapes.”

The episode will air on 27 August at 21:00 on National Geographic.

Over six episodes, season five of Europe From Above will showcase Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway and Iceland in the Nordics, as well as the Mediterranean, Benelux, the Spanish Isles, the Alps and the British Isles.
