INTRO MADE BY: Doctor Horror
Tails of Iceland (Trailer)
This is a taste of the upcoming Tails of Iceland documentary, exploring the special relationships between the Icelandic people and their unusual horses. It is about the culture and the connection, and there have been as many stories as there are thousands of years since these horses were brought to this fiercely unforgiving and magnificent island. Our goal is to capture some of the tales and a lot of the history, but more importantly, to illustrate how deep this unique kinship goes.
This documentary is in production with an expected release in early 2019.

Exploring Iceland's Viking heritage
Iceland is experiencing a revival of its Viking culture according to commentators in the country.
The country is renown for keeping a tight reign on its language, but now people are increasingly celebrating Viking lifestyle and traditions.
Some historians say the world Viking derives from the old Norse vik, meaning inlet or small bay.
Vikings arrived in their wooden drakkar ships and settled in bays like Reykjavik (Norse for smokey bay) back in the 9th Century AD.
Most of these early settlers arrived from west Norway and other Viking Age settlements in mainland Scandinavia and the British Isles.
During many centuries communication with the outside world was almost non-existent and historians say this has contributed to a spirit of resilience - maybe even stubbornness - typical of modern Iceland.
Furthermore, the old Norse spoken by the first settlers is almost the same modern Icelandic spoken by the 323,000 inhabitants of this island country.
Literally, aeroplane means flying engine, light bulb means bright pear and a video camera is named as a talking engine.
Icelanders are proud of their untamed language as well as their old names.
Foreign names are banned and there is no such thing as a surname. Icelanders are identified by their first name - which must be chosen from the Icelandic Naming Committee's approved list - and the son/daughter of affix.
Kristann Atlasson, son of Atlas, says that despite the many theories of where in Scandinavia those first settlers came from, he feels like a modern day Viking.
He says: I am not sure about the original Vikings coming from Norway. There is some debate about that. But I grew up thinking I was a Viking,so I'd say that.
But some Icelanders are reluctant to fit the stereotype.
Hekla Allansdottir says: Personally I don't feel I am a part of a Viking heritage. But a lot of Icelanders do.
The early centuries of the Icelandic nation are known as The Saga Age, because many of the events during that time were recorded in the famous Icelandic Sagas.
The Sagas - a collection of histories, poems and legends from the Viking ancestors - constitute the foundation of Icelandic culture and folklore that has forged the country's identity.
In addition to the harsh Arctic weather there is also the continuous threat from volcanoes in one of the world's most active geological spots.
This is Heimaey island, one of the first Viking settlements in Iceland.
This tiny island off the southern coast of the mainland was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1973.
The entire population was evacuated during the months of the eruption and redistributed across the main island.
But once the volcanic threat was over most of the inhabitants, in the true Viking spirit, decided to return to Heimaey.
This is a replica of the first wooden church of Iceland, built in this same spot around 1170 following the country's conversion to Christianity.
Local historian, Helga Hallbergsdottir says it was the Viking spirit that helped them reclaim their tiny strip of land rather than settling elsewhere.
She says: As descendants from them we are very hard working and resourceful. We never give up. And we don't worry much about the future. It's going to be okay.
This is Reykjavik's Saga Museum, a family run exhibition of the first Viking settlers.
These latex models depict many tales from the Sagas.
Most of those first Viking settlers were mainly farmers escaping from the tyranny of Norwegian King Harald I (Harald Fairhair).
They set sail in open boats with their families, slaves and livestock and settled along the coast sustaining themselves mainly by fishing and agriculture.
Between 999 and 1000 AD Christianity was adopted in Iceland with Jon Ogmundsson as the island's first bishop.

Prostitution in Iceland - MGTOW
Purchasing service from a prostitute is illegal in Iceland. Strip clubs and printed porn have also been banned. Now the government led by a feminist lesbian ruler is thinking about banning all internet pornography as well. Iceland may join the likes of Saudi Arabia in banning pornography.

REYKJAVIK'S MAYOR RAN AS A JOKE, AND WON THE ELECTION
When Iceland's banking system collapsed in 2008, people were understandably angry. The crisis almost destroyed the remote North Atlantic nation.
But Icelanders, who have survived plenty over the course of their history—including volcanic eruptions, invasions and harsh weather—fought back. Sick of politics-as-usual, a new and dramatically unconventional movement emerged to challenge the status quo.
Iceland is tiny. Just 320,000 people inhabit the entire island, and as Vocativ found on our recent visit to Reykjavik, momentum builds quite quickly when a few people decide to take on the establishment. We're like the canary in the coal mine, one Icelandic politician says. Iceland has a proud history of freedom and activism. (The anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks has been particularly active there.)
Today one of the most popular politicians in the country is the Reykjavik mayor, former punk rocker and comedian Jón Gnarr. And this year, the Pirate Party, a political organization dedicated to Internet freedom and government transparency, won three seats in Iceland's parliament—the biggest election victory for the Pirate movement that began in Sweden more than seven years ago. (It should be noted that the government is still dominated by a center-right coalition, the same bunch largely blamed for the banking collapse.)
They are self-styled politicians for the Internet age. Independent of spirit, like their Viking ancestors.

Iceland Elves: Fact or Fiction?
Elves in Iceland ... do they actually exist? If you live in Iceland, chances are that you have a certain reverence for elves, fairies, trolls and hidden folk. While not everyone in Iceland believes in elves, a majority of residents believe in the possibility that they could exist.
To investigate Iceland's connection with elves and hidden folk, I head to Reykjavik's Elf School, which offers half-day courses on elf folklore and the supernatural. Classes are offered weekly and by appointment for approximately $50 per adult and $25 for children 10 and under.
Magnus Skarphedinsson, the Elf School's headmaster, has spoken with more than 1,200 witnesses and believes, without a shadow of a doubt, that elves exist. Witnesses from Iceland and other countries around the world have told Skarphedinsson about their personal encounters with fairies, hidden folk, trolls, elves or other beings. Skarphedinsson has collected their stories and bound them into a workbook, which accounts for a large part of the Elf School's curriculum.
Those interested in connecting the Elf School's stories with places in and around Reykjavik can arrange a tour with the headmaster. He will take students to elf landmarks and homes while teaching about their significance in Icelandic culture.
About a 15-minute drive from Reykjavik, in Hafnarfjörður, is the Elf Garden. This popular elf attraction is helmed by Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, a seer and artist who has a special relationship with the Elf Garden's residents since she was a child.
Jónsdóttir says she speaks to the local elf population mostly through telepathy and meditation. She describes what her supernatural pals look like, what they wear, how their homes are decorated and how they pass the time while serving Elf Tea (an herbal blend of loose-leaf tea) to guests.
Visitors can also book a walking tour of the Elf Garden in order to see the homes of several different elf species. As for going inside of their homes, humans must leave the physical body behind and allow the mind and spirit to do the traveling, according to Jónsdóttir.
So what do you believe? Do elves in Iceland exist? Share your opinion in the comments below or via social media with the hashtag #JJiceland.

THIS IS ICELAND - (ring road in winter)
We heard many tales about this land. To see them with our own eyes, we travelled thousands of miles across the world to tell a story of our own.
So, this is our story of Iceland, one of the most beautiful countries we've ever seen. But its violent weather held us from capturing its full beauty.
We had some delay, which had us miss many places on the list.
We learnt many things during our stay in Iceland, especially to respect mother nature.
Thanks to Iceland Car Rental for providing awesome reliable ride & Troll Expeditions for great arrangement of tours.
All in all, this is one country we'll keep reminiscing about for many years to come
