Watch This Awesome 4K Video Of Iceland

Reykjavik Marathon
Written by Charlie

Iceland was a country that I was always intrigued with but never thought I would get a chance to visit. That changed a couple of years ago when things aligned for me and I was able to pop over to Iceland for a couple of days to take in just a little of the beauty of the country – and run the Reykjavik Marathon. Iceland is still the most beautiful country that I have been to and I look forward to getting back there again with my family. The marathon is also a must-run with good organization and a beautiful course – not to mention very nice, cool weather for August!

When I saw this awesome 4K video of Iceland, I knew I had to share it. Do yourself a favor and do not watch it in the screen below – click to button to watch on YouTube and go full screen. It is the result of 14 days of filming by two students and it is a great way to just tease yourself with some of the beauty of this little country. You will probably notice what I did – not a lot of scenes from places that people typically associate with Iceland. I actually liked that. It gave a beautifully detailed look at some of the other natural places around the country and what you see can be seen just by driving on the road between the spots. That is how plentiful the beauty is.

If you want to visit it yourself, consider flying over on the ultra cheap tickets that WOW Air puts out, using Icelandair out of many of the major US airports, building it into a trip to Europe, or using Delta to fly non-stop from JFK. It is really not that far, basically the same time from JFK as Los Angeles is and it is certainly worth your time. I am playing with the idea of running the marathon again there next year so let me know if you are interested in that!
