Social Medias Coolest Campaign In Iceland


Ever since travel destinations have started flocking to social media, my travel wish list has been growing. It’s hard not to ogle at Visit Norway‘s eye-candy on Facebook and hatch secret plans of hanging out amid the Norwegian fjords. It’s easy to get distracted by Visit Jordan‘s teasers on Twitter, and be constantly tempted by the need for Spain.

Then I stumble upon someone who does it differently.

The folks at Takk Takk did not want to ‘create a few social media profiles here and there for Visit Iceland, and build a nice looking website with pictures of landscapes and attractive people,’ like everyone else. Instead, they put Iceland, as its own self, online.

Iceland speaks in first person on Facebook & Twitter, has a quirky old-school personality, and a voice that’s hard to miss.

It’s refreshing to see a country with such beautiful landscapes tackling the social media clutter so cleverly. And of course, if you need more inspiration to be friends with Iceland, they have lots of visual ammunition too.

I am convinced that Iceland wants to be your friend is the most creative and original travel campaign since the Best job in the world by Tourism Queensland.

What do you think? Does it make you want to be friends with Iceland?

The first is the most thrilling, because being from a protective Indian family means every travel plan comes with a small battle. She says, "I’m not complaining. At my age, few from my hometown have traveled as much and as independently as me."
