This spectacular video, shot by Icelandic opthalmologist, photographer and adventurer Ólafur Már Björnsson, captures the amazing landscapes during some of his 2016 hikes. When Ólafur isn't practicing medicine (an ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the medical and surgical care of the eyes) he is busy exploring and enjoying the great Icelandic outdoors. 

We have previously shared some of Ólafur's videos, including his amazing video of a hike to the Jarlhettur mountain ridge south-east of Langjökull glacier. See here: Jarlhettur Mountain Ridge: Breathtaking short film shot during a hike through one of Iceland's most desolate areas)

A second great video shot by Ólafur follows him and a group of hikers, including his son, to the summit of Hvannadalshnjúkur the highest peak in Iceland. The group then descended down the slope on skis.

His latest video, titled "Iceland -our view 2016" which follows Ólafur and his hiking group during their 2016 summer adventures is equally great, capturing some of the greatest views Iceland has to offer!
