Belgian explorer inspired by Inspired by Iceland

The Belgian explorer and cross-Iceland veteran, Louis Philippe Loncke has released a tongue-in-cheek parody video on the Inspired by Iceland campaign. Louis recorded the video while crossing Iceland alone on foot this summer.

Following the success of the original Inspired by Iceland video, Loncke decided to parody it as part of his sponsorship drive to return to Iceland this winter to set another gruelling record: although many people have walked right the way across Iceland, Loncke is the first to have taken the route from Rifstangi in the north to Kotlutangi in the south completely alone and without backup. But now he wants to do it again in the dead of winter.

The gruelling 560km jaunt this summer took 19 days and left Loncke with an array of injuries and eight kilogrammes lighter. But the brave Belgian is not going to stop there: he now wants to do it all over again in January or February.

The only difference, he says, will be that next time he plans to secure sponsorship to equip himself properly so that he won’t have to climb glaciers in winter without so much as an ice axe or crampons.

Loncke’s video, below, is a parody of the original Inspired by Iceland video. If you have not seen the original, watch it first, here.
