Like most folks, we have been forced to cancel or postpone our travel plans due to the pandemic. As U.S. citizens, we don’t have many options since most countries won’t admit us anyway. But that doesn’t mean we have abandoned all of our travel plans just yet. Prior to the plague outbreak, we had been looking forward to another visit to Iceland. It’s been one of my favorite countries for decades and we had a long road trip penciled in for next year already. For the moment, all we can lean on are our travel memories and amazing films like the one below.
Videographers and artists Jonathan Besler, Kevin May and Florian Gampert created this extraordinary video trekking and hiking Iceland with a Phantom 4 drone. The resulting footage provides all the incentive that anyone could possible require for a visit to Iceland. Titled The North Awakens, the video demands to be played full screen.
