Incredible Iceland

I just spent two weeks on a trip to Iceland. I drove my electric car to the Northern tip of Denmark and boarded a ferry there. By way of Faroe Islands, the ship needed two days to get to the little port of Seyðisfjörður on the Eastern end of Iceland. (Turns out: there is no ferry from Europe to Reykjavik, this is the only way.)

Once I got there, I drove the southern “route 1” all the way to Reykjavik on the other end of Iceland, met a friend there, did a bit of sightseeing, and then showed my first documentary feature film ‘Purpose’ as its premiere at the Wellbeing Economy Forum. The next day, I drove back to Seyðisfjörður. This time I took the northern part of route 1, and boarded the ship back.

All in all, the whole trip took thirteen days. There’s more to say about it, and I am working on trying to say it in the most engaging way … but for now, I just need to get off my chest what a crazy amazing place Iceland is.

I was unprepared when I reached the island. I had hardly read anything about it and did not know what to expect. So when I went on my drive, the incredible nature and landscapes in Iceland hit me with a force that I had not anticipated. Unfortunately, photos cannot really do it justice. In order to truly capture how incredible Iceland is, you’ll need video footage — ideally from a drone … But still, here is a little gallery.
