Where is Netflix’s A Storm for Christmas Filmed?

Created by Per-Olav Sørensen, Netflix’s ‘A Storm for Christmas’ (originally titled ‘Julstormen’) is a Norwegian comedy-drama series set on Christmas Eve that revolves around a group of people who come to the airport with their motives for the holiday season. However, all their plans are put on hold as they are left stranded alongside the workers at the airport due to an intense snowstorm outside. Now, strangers turn into acquaintances and, eventually, friends as they spend the final hours under one roof just before Christmas.

The drama series highlights how the holiday season brings people from different backgrounds together, even during stressful times. The narrative is enhanced further by the brilliant performances of a talented cast comprising Ida Elise Broch, Dennis Storhøi, Jan Gunnar Røise, and Hanna Ardéhn.
