Justin Bieber's new music video "I'll Show You", which was shot entirely in Iceland during his visit in September is getting rave reviews. When this is written it has been viewed almost five million times in less than 24 hours. Many commentators on Youtube, where the video is hosted, are blown away by Iceland's landscape, with one asking "Places like this actually exist?l" and another "That's one beautiful place I tell ya where is it?!"

The video was shot at numerous locations along the south coast, here we take you through the exact locations. Maybe you can follow in Bieber's footsteps one day. See names of each place below and locations on the map.
