According to a post on the Instagram account of Rory Kramer, a friend who followed Bieber on his visit to Iceland, Bieber had seen photographs another friend, Chris Burkard had taken in Iceland and had been mesmerized. The two decided they had had to visit the country, and especially Fjaðrárgljúfur. A photograph of Bieber coming out of Fjaðrá river in his underwear caught worldwide attention and more than a million likes.

Bieber was also pleased with both the rain of Iceland, and the members of the fairer sex. In a short video shot at an unidentified parking spot in Southern Iceland Bieber is seen singing and dancing to a the song No Type by Lil Wayne.

Then, according to the local gossip website Bieber invited some local fans to his hotel room while staying at Hotel Rangá in Southern Iceland. The girls, who were happy about the encounter, reportedly got to listen to some of Bieber’s unpublished materials from his next album while having a good time with the pop star.

It turns out Bieber's stopover in Iceland was a brief vacation before the star went back to the studio to record material for his next album. A tweet he published just 13 hours after leaving Iceland announced he was finishing a "solid night in the studio".
