Iceland Chopper: A Helicopter Pilot's Tour Of The Wild

Iceland Chopper: A Helicopter Pilot's Tour Of The Wild

 

One of the best ways to see basically anywhere is by helicopter. If there happens to be a volcano, glacier and lava fields nearby, then you can pretty much guarantee it's a pretty smart career move. That is exactly what Gisli did.

Hailing from the small southerly Westman Islands, he is a tour pilot and has captured some of the most iconic parts of his home country on film in epic style. Thankfully, his social media game is as strong as a plate of Hákarl, with jaw-dropping youtube vids, an enviable Instagram feed and thousands of followers elsewhere, the pleasure really is all ours.

In a recent interview, Gisli mentioned flying Bear Grylls around the island filming for his global hit Man vs Wild and mistaking the celebrity guinea pig, in this case, Jake Gyllenhaal, for a mere stunt-man. Kudos, Gisli, make sure you keep those flying feet firmly on the ground.

Unless you're off to shoot another blinding vid like this one...
