Into the Land of Icelandic Waterfalls: Check the New RedBull Film “Jötunn”

-

- Advertisment -

We dare you to try and keep their names apart, but kayakers Aniol Serrasolses and Mikel Sarasola, along with photographers Aleix Salvat and David Nogales, ventured into the freezing landscapes of Iceland to produce RedBull’s documentary called “Jötunn,” a breakthrough project for both the paddlers and filmmakers.

“Jötunn is a documentary in which we tried to teach the adventure of exploration from within,” says Sarasola. “Because extreme kayakers aren’t crazy people who jump down waterfalls. They’re people who prepare each descent with great care and who’ve spent a lifetime working on the technique to be able to do what for the vast majority would be incredibly dangerous. They have a special connection with water and rivers. For a kayaker, the least important thing is a spectacular photo, because usually everything important happens with the camera turned off. The important thing is to be out there, enjoying your passion and so we tried to show in Jötunn what’s not normally seen.”

Iceland: Land of waterfalls

Sarasola: In His Own Words:

“A waterfall is – probably – the most aesthetic and hypnotic formation that you can find in a river. And if there’s a country that stands out for its waterfalls, it’s Iceland – a country that’s experiencing a tourist boom, based mainly on its impressive nature: volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs, geysers and, of course, waterfalls.

Skogafoss, Godafoss, Dettifoss and Svartifoss are just some of the obligatory stops that fill magazines and social networks with impressive photos. It’s not surprising the interest that this small island lost in the Arctic arouses among extreme kayakers.

At the beginning of the year, we chatted with Aniol Serrasolses, one of the world’s leading figures in extreme kayaking and my paddling partner on many adventures, about the option of going to Iceland. He’d already been there and explored the terrain before, and he confirmed to me that there was still a lot to discover in those lands and that he’d love to return in search of new adventures.
