Why visit Iceland

Iceland is a island country in Northern Europe surronded by the Atlantic Ocean.

Its landscape is shaped by volcanic and geothermical activities because of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, on which Iceland is located. Therefore, most of its territory is covered by mountains, that here and there leave space to wide plateaus and glaciers. The coasts are jagged and host several fjords to the north, while to the south they become more gentle and sandy.
