Why Islandia

I was recently asked (again) why I still encourage folks to visit Iceland even in this era of overtourism. I could reiterate all of the reasons to go, but this amazing short film by Moscow-based videographer Vadim Sherbakov explains it better than I ever could.

“Islandia — is a Latin name for Iceland and relative to the old language since this film portraits primordial and rough nature of Iceland. For the short duration of the film, you will be transported to a place that easily could be a million years ago. From unbelievable landscapes and vast valleys to painting-like terrain and majestic waterfalls and lakes – this film shows the unparalleled beauty of Iceland and its unearthly glory.”

  1. Our daughter and son-in-law just returned from Iceland, where they drove the ring road. They loved it.

    That is a wonderful video, as are your photos. It looks as if it would be helpful to pack a drone in your luggage to get a video like that!

    Marvelous video. I would love to see Iceland again. I was there once about 40 years ago.

    • I also first visited Iceland 40 years ago. I’ve since been back 4 times; the last time was 2 years ago. You would be shocked at how much Reykjavik and the surrounding region has chained, but the rest of the country is still gloriously wild.
