This Is Why You Should Travel to ICELAND


  1. Hi Gabriel, Somehow I pictured Iceland as a more frosty and cold climate. The tour guide talked about global warming when referring to the glacier and its effects on Iceland he didn't say if this is human interaction or a natural progression but it does show the world is warming gradually I'm sure our massive use of gas and destruction of trees really doesn't help this situation. All this contributes to CO 2 emissions and global warming.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed your Iceland visit. As for me, your video is as close as I want to get to Iceland-not my cup of tea.

  3. Ooo man, what an outdoor shower is this waterfall ๐Ÿ™‚
    So sad that Iceland is to expensive, especially for Easter Europeans like me.

  4. Back in 1987 when I was in college – well I dropped out for a year – and flew thru Iceland on was to Luxembourg, I bought a really cool Icelandic sweater. Doubt I paid more than $25 for if & still got the dang thing somewhere in my sweater pile.

  5. Damn the weather…..i just love it……grey skies , quite, isolated with only 1 lakh pop…..and most importantly personal space where people will only talk to u when they need, will only ask u according to their needs……i love to live isolated….it feels gr8…..looking forward to visit iceland or tge Scandinavia

  6. Amazing! We were there in September which is, of course, the end of summer.. I won't say it was easy to walk behind Seljalandsfoss then…got pretty wet, but not nearly as much water as in winter….duh! Thanks!!

  7. Oh my gosh! Still dark till 11 am, how strange! Weird, yet interesting. The whole country is interesting…you're the best, Gabe.

  8. Dude I hope the tour guides SAID to bring a change of clothes, otherwise they will have some very uncomfortable folks along for the not so fun ride!! Hope you were able to change! I kept thinking how cold your feet probably was!! lol

  9. Iceland just looks cold, wet and gloomy. Not sure I would travel there. Think the blue lagoon is the only worth while place to see while there lol

  10. You have by far one of the most interesting, unique and informative travel channels here. Iโ€™ve been subscribed for one year now and these videos still never cease to amaze me. Iโ€™ve put many countries that I never imagined visiting on my bucket list because of you. Thank you for these videos, I look forward to them. Keep it up! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

  11. Ha I also remember from my trip to Iceland I met someone else from Canada and we hitchhiked together a bit. We hitchhiked to that black sand beach at the end of the video and then we climb that mountain on your left to get to Vik lol.

  12. When I was in Iceland at Skogafoss you could walk right up to the waterfall almost. So yeah it's definitely pushing more water than it did when I was there!

  13. If you ever get the chance visit Vestmannaeyjer island in the south of Iceland. The ferry there and back is about 32$ CAD (so like 24$ USD) and you can explore the entire island in a day. It's a beautiful little island if you get the chance. I think it would make for a great video in itself and the ferry ride over is only 45 minutes with pretty good views of the cliffs.

  14. Wow, those waterfalls were impressive, almost made me feel cold and wet behind my screen ! Great 4 past months, thanks for making me travel to all those great places, your videos always light my days ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š.
