A land of boiling mud pools, spurting geysers, glaciers and waterfalls is also an adventure playground. The pure and unpolluted, breathtaking landscape is a truly magical inspiration to artists and photographers.
What most attracts visitors to Iceland are its landscapes. Tourists come away from the land of fire and ice with unforgettable images of volcanoes, glaciers, geysers, lava fields, sand beaches, near lunar landscapes and waterfalls. The natural wonders of this island not quite the size of England make a spectacular destination for lovers of nature and solitude.
The omniprecence of nature in no way eclipses the vibrancy of Icelandic culture. Contemproary artist, musicians, writers and artisans devoted to their craft make up the cultural world of Iceland, along with the elfin characters of Viking history and sagas. This ebullient cutlure is a pillar of the country, where 120.000 members of the 330.000 strong population reside in the capital, Reykjavík.
