Iceland - Geysers and Glaciers

Iceland is the land of surreal opposites: raging volcanoes and majestic glaciers, hot springs and icy waterfalls. Much of the country is still taking shape, right before the eyes of visitors, as its raw, dramatic landscapes are born from volcanic eruptions and carved out by glaciers. On the other hand, there are parts of Iceland that have hardly changed since the first Viking settlers saw them more than 1,100 years ago. This breathtakingly beautiful island offers both exhilarating adventures amid the moss-covered lava fields, volcanoes and ice fields and the understated sophistication of Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital city.

Icelandic Geology

Iceland is a geologically fascinating and unique country, situated right above the geologic rift between the North American plate and the Eurasian plate. Looking at the map, it seems that the rift cuts the island in two halves, and it is believed that the rift is responsible for the formation of Iceland itself about 18 million years ago. Considering all this underlying tension, the country is a hot spot of volcanic and geothermal activity: 30 post-glacial volcanoes have erupted in the past two centuries and natural hot water supplies much of the population with cheap, pollution-free heating. The infamous Laki volcano erupted in 1783 and caused a famine that wiped out nearly a quarter of the population. more

The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's most popular attractions. It’s an outdoor pool of geothermal seawater, about 45 minutes from Reykjavik and close to Keflavik airport. The fluorescent blue pool of water is quite warm, almost 104°F year round, and it makes the Blue Lagoon a very popular destination in the cold Icelandic winters. The lagoon is surrounded by black lava rocks and covered with surreal bright steam. Due to its vast size, it is easy to find a spot to get that weightless sensation floating in the water.

Icelandic Horses

The Icelandic horse is a breed of horse developed in Iceland. Although the horses are small, at times pony-sized, most registries for the Icelandic refer to it as a horse. Icelandic horses are long-lived and hardy. In their native country they have few diseases; Icelandic law prevents horses from being imported into the country and exported animals are not allowed to return. The Icelandic displays two gaits in addition to the typical walk, trot, and canter/gallop commonly displayed by other breeds. The only breed of horse in Iceland, they are also popular internationally and sizable populations exist in Europe and North America. more
