About Iceland

Located in an active geologic zone in Northern Europe, Iceland is a small Nordic country of approximately 360,000 people.

Though the temperatures are cooler than many other parts of the world, the Gulf Stream actually makes the climate mild considering it’s one of the northernmost inhabited places in the world.

Most people in the country live in its capital Reykjavík, a modern capital that is believed to be the first settlement in Iceland by Norsemen. The capital is full of wonderful restaurants, boutiques, and hotels.

Iceland Scenery

Iceland is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty from expansive glaciers such as Vatnajökull and Langjökull. Depending on the season, you can go snowmobiling, hiking, and ice caving at these largest glaciers in Europe.

Among the best places in Iceland are its geysers and natural thermal pools, such as the Blue Lagoon. Many areas of the country have local community ‘pools’ where residents bathe in soothing warm waters.

The country is also home to rugged cliffs and coasts, beautiful black-sand beaches, and numerous waterfalls.
