A Micro-Break to Iceland Will Make You Feel Infinitely Better

Outside's long reads email newsletter features our strongest writing, most ambitious reporting, and award-winning storytelling about the outdoors. Sign up today.

It's two o'clock in the afternoon. You're not sure if it's the beige cubicle walls, the artificial lights, or the fact that you just responded to the thirtieth email today, all you know is that the office is leaching the last bits of your happiness. Luckily, our ongoing Weekly Escape series is here to rescue you. This week, head to Iceland with the folks at Zangs Films. They shot this video over the course of a week in the dead of winter, when the sun shines an average of four hours a day. If they can find the silver lining in that environment, there's hope for your day yet. You can watch the video in 4K here, and you can follow Zangs Films on Facebook here and on Instagram here.
