Drone Footage Captures Iceland’s Picture-Perfect Landscapes

The sweeping majesty of Greenland’s neighbor to the east comes alive in photographer Garðar Ólafsson‘s breathtaking compilation of nature footage, Powerful Iceland.

Spanning just shy of five minutes time, the video takes viewers to 13 separate locations throughout Björk’s homeland, over sherbet-hued seas and cascading waterfalls, and into rolling fog banks.

Ólafsson has been shooting around Iceland for the last few months, using a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone, a Canon EOS 6D, a Sony a7S, and a GoPro. In his video description, he explains, “It’s such an amazing country that everyone should witness with their own eyes.”

And given our track record of Icelandic wanderlusting, from Mount Kirkjufell to Vatnsnes, it’s clear we couldn’t agree more. Check it out below:
