Iceland

Iceland is situated in the North Atlantic ocean - a world of natural splendour. The first thing the Vikings saw centuries ago, when they arrived to South Iceland, was the glacier Vatnajökull. Therefore they named the land Iceland. However, there is much more to this fascinating country.

Iceland is a land of natural wonders

Active volcanoes, vast lava fields, fertile valleys, hot springs, bubbling mud pools, mountains, waterfalls and of course glaciers.

Experience Reykjavik; the capital of Iceland which is a blend of the past and the modern world. You will find all facilities of a metropolis mixed with the friendliness of a small town. On the doorstep of Reykjavik, the magnificent nature awaits you with experiences that are second to none.
