Iceland is a country like no other. Where else will you find a country with 15 active volcanoes, 10,000 waterfalls, 800 hot springs, 11,500 square kilometers of glaciers, 10.00.000 puffins, exploding geysers, the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun?
Iceland is unique. That’s a fact!
Iceland is also closer than you think. Reykjavík, Europe’s northernmost capital, is closer to New York than Los Angeles and only 2-4 hours flying time from most major cities in Western Europe.
Iceland is Europe’s second largest island (103,000 sq. km). The present population is approximately 320,000. More than half of the population lives in or around the capital, Reykjavík. The rest of the population is dispersed around the coastal fringes, leaving the highland center of the country uninhabited.
Iceland is Europe’s youngest country, geologically speaking, and was also the last European country to be settled by man. On our unique island you will discover Mother Nature´s greatest contrasts; the perfect balance of fire and ice. Come to Iceland for the adventure of a lifetime.
