Travel Adventures: 5 Days Touring Iceland In 2022

Marco Moritz Photography – A five day adventure in Iceland in August 2022.

Iceland, island country located in the North Atlantic Ocean. Lying on the constantly active geologic border between North America and Europe, Iceland is a land of vivid contrasts of climate, geography, and culture. Sparkling glaciers, such as Vatna Glacier (Vatnajökull), Europe’s largest, lie across its ruggedly beautiful mountain ranges; abundant hot geysers provide heat for many of the country’s homes and buildings and allow for hothouse agriculture year-round; and the offshore Gulf Stream provides a surprisingly mild climate for what is one of the northernmost inhabited places on the planet.

Cinematic Travel: ‘The Iceland Adventure’ (4K)

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. 

It’s been a year since I made a trip to Iceland with my sister. This was when the Faggrasjadal volcano was still active and we really wanted to see it with our own eyes. And this was definitely one of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had.

In addition, we drove through almost all of Iceland in five days and we visited a lot of spectacular places with the most beautiful views. Five days is of course way too little to see everything and that’s why I really can’t wait until I can go back to visit Iceland.

Eve Jackson goes to the land of ice and fire to find out why Iceland has such an exceptional and disproportionate amount of artists.

Cinematic Views: ‘Islandia Symphonia’ In Iceland (4K)

“Describing Iceland in words or pictures would be so reductive. You have to live these wide open spaces, feel the heat of its soil, the air coming from these glaciers, hear the creaking of the lapilli under your feet and the rumbling of its volcanoes. We had discovered Iceland more than 10 years ago. As I often say, I left a part of my soul there. A revelation as a traveler and as an creator. But so many years later, the feelings have not changed. At the time, I was just discovering photography. I came back to it as a filmmaker to capture this symphony of wonders.”
