Iceland, the island of contrasts, where heaven and earth meet, and where the sagas of the Vikings were written, a land of glaciers, erupting volcanoes and the magnificent midnight sun.

One of the advantages of living in Iceland is the endless and ubiquitous flow of geothermal water streaming from the earth. This hot water is used in open-air swimming pools all around the country, serving as health spas and as pleasant places to meet people.
Horseback riding is an extremely popular leisure activity.

Iceland is sparsely populated. The interior of the country with its stunning contrasts is largely an arctic desert, punctuated with mountains, glaciers, volcanoes and waterfalls.

Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is the world’s most northerly capital. Reykjavik means “Smoky Bay”, so named by the first Viking settlers in the 9th century because of the steam rising from the geothermal hot springs. Reykjavik offers historical sites, natural beauty, museums, public parks and a wide range of outdoor leisure activities.
