A new video helps you experience what it’s like to soar like a bald eagle — from the safety of your seat.

The video, which gained 5 million views on YouTube in just one week, was apparently shot when someone attached a camera to an eagle’s back.

The result? We all get to go for a magnificent ride over the Chamonix valley in southeastern France, with views of cliffs, treetops and train tracks.

Strap on your seatbelt and get ready for takeoff.
