Many are feeling increasingly stressed and frustrated because of coronavirus lockdowns around the world, and Iceland seems to have the answer. The country launched Let It Out, an initiative that encourages everyone to record their guttural screams of frustration and release them into Iceland’s beautiful, wide-open spaces.

Not only are the screams broadcast on the initiative’s website, they are also played in seven different remote locations in the country — like Viðey in Reykjavík, Festarfjall by Grindavík, Skógafoss, close to Djúpivogur, at the foot of Snæfellsjökull, by Kálfshamarsvík and by Rauðasandur in the Westfjords — through bright-yellow speakers.

By going to, participants can record their screams while looking at numerous photos of Icelandic wildlife and landscapes.

While the campaign is light-hearted, Promote Iceland also wants to encourage people to take their mental health seriously.
