Iceland Winter Wonderland

Iceland Winter Wonderland

Iceland is the second largest Island in Europe. It is of volcanic origin and  some areas consist of glaciers located internally.

This is because of the Gulf currents which produce a mild subarctic climate. 1966 67% of the Icelanders lived in the cities of the country of which two-fifth lived in Reykjavik alone. The language spoken is Icelandic. The most important export product of Iceland is fish produce. Iceland has no rail connections and has to rely on the road transport and coastal shipping. Air transport however plays a big role and there are over 90 smaller airports and one international airport. The increase in tourism has overcome the isolated location of the country. Geological the youngest country in the world, Iceland is thriving on an abundance of energy, where fire and ice exists side by side and as in Northern Scandinavia it has endless days in summer and the natural landscape offers an amazing array of activities. Iceland is a beautiful country just waiting to be explored, when coming alive in the summer months Its dramatic scenery offers a wealth of opportunities for walking and touring in national parks. The country also is the home of Europe’s largest glacier, the Vatnajoekull and also the Thingvellier National Park. Being a volcanic region also means there are many geothermal springs and lava fields to explore.
