By | Iceland in the News, Icelandic Nature | No Comments

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.

Justin Bieber in Iceland

By | Local News From Iceland | No Comments

Canadian musician Justin Bieber landed at Keflavík Airport today, Vísir reports.

Bieber drove straight to nearby Reykjanesbær and parked in front of Lemon, a sandwich place.

“Unfortunately, he had no time to eat, but said he might come back later,” stated Lemon owner, Jón Þór Gylfason. “He and 15 bodyguards arrived in two huge Mercedes Benz vans. He’s clearly here with two friends. They all ran alongside Lemon toward the ocean, where there is a rock wall, popular with tourists.” According to Jón, they had cameras and recording equipment.

Once he returned, he was greeted by two Lemon employees. They were allowed to chat with him, but the bodyguards made sure no photos were taken. “He asked the employees what it was like living in Iceland and such. He said he had a stopover here in Iceland and didn’t want any photos taken,” Jón told Vísir.

Conclusion:

  • Justin Bieber was in Iceland today, but may well be gone.
  • He was not hungry.
  • He wanted a picture of the ocean.
  • Saying he might be back to Lemon may indicate he’s planning another trip to Iceland. It could also simply mean he’s polite.

He just posted a picture of himself in Fjaðrárgljúfur, South Iceland, close to Kirkjubæjarklaustur, wearing only his wet, white, Calvin Klein underwear, giving a high five. He appears delighted after a glacial dip. Below is another picture Bieber has posted on Instragram from his trip in Iceland.

Update:RÚV reports Bieber is here to work on a video.
