One of my longest running travel obsessions has been the extraordinary island nation of Iceland. I’ve been lucky enough to have been visiting there for more than 40 years. In some ways Iceland has experienced amazing changes during the last 4 decades. When I first visited Reykjavik, it was barely a city with a population under 50,000. Now the nation’s capital is a booming cosmopolitan metro region with nearly 250,000 residents. But the entire population of Iceland is still only around 350,000 and once you leave the capital region the country remains wild and undeveloped.
I recently discovered the fantastic video below which was shot by Joshua Turner during the summer of 2021. Locations include Fagradalsfjall volcano, Svinafellsjokull glacier, Hengifoss waterfall, Mulagljufur canyon, Vestmannaeyjar, Seydisfjordur, Haifoss waterfall, Fjaðrárgljúfur canyon, Hvitserkur, Vik, Sólheimajökull glacier, and Selfoss waterfall. The amazing video was shot entirely with the DJI FPV Drone with a gopro Hero 8 mounted on top. It’s just 6 minutes, but is a dazzling experience.
Id love to see Iceland again
