In Iceland's rough and remote Westfjords region, Chad Sayers, Forrest Coots, and Chad Manley step back in time to revisit a way of life that lasted 1000 years. With the guidance of local friends Siggi Jonsson and Runar Karlsson, they traverse the storied landscape via sailboat, kayak, and ski, exploring what it would have been like to survive there for so many generations. Each ski run begins and ends with seaweed underfoot, while waterfalls, lichen-clad couloirs, and stories of humans past make up the in-between.

In order to get featured on this channel the film must be of outstanding quality or be somehow more interesting than many others on @vimeo. My choice of films is partly guided by @5PointFilm @SidetrackedMag @DirtbagDiaries. I also do appreciate @500px @exposure @Musicbed.

It is one of the most followed channels on vimeo in Adventure Travel & Extreme Sports categories. Thanks for everyone who appreciate the quality short films.

From now on, you can freely add films to my group. Into the Wild
