Kasper Høglund, a Norwegian who lives full-time in his Land Rover and works as a photographer, steps up and calls out overlanders how are driving off road in Norway, which is not permitted and illegal.
Unfortunately, the problem of overlanders (and others) not taking responsibility for their actions, and being short sighted, are ruining it for most everyone else.
As Kasper puts it in his video description »
There’s been a growing issue with more and more roads closed off for travel in Norway the last years. And throughout my traveling up north this summer a lot of my former favourite spots was now closed for good.
Apps like Park4Night and social media presence from people doing illegal and stupid driving over here is making the overland scene tougher for everyone.
For years I’ve never done anything but kindly reminding people about the strict off road laws in Norway. But these two guys pushed to limit enough to piss off locals enough to contact me directly to address this.
These guys with over a hundred thousand people following them and million of views does have a huge impact to a small town with a few hundred people living in it.
If you agree with him, follow and support Kasper (and others) who are doing what’s right before selfish a**holes ruin it for everyone.
