Climbing Untouched Ice in a Remote Part of Iceland

Travel By

Each year, ICE-SAR, Iceland’s elite search-and-rescue unit, saves between 500–600 people from its remote, unforgiving landscape. Visitors often underestimate how quickly weather changes or rugged the terrain can be, placing them in precarious situations. Knowing this, Klemen Premrl and his crew set out to explore new caves and cliff faces. Watch their journey in the short film below. For more information on the ICE-SAR, check out this incredible feature from The New Yorker.
