Iceland, the mystic and remote island high up north, is geographically situated in the North Atlantic and about 103,000 km² (10.3 ha) large. Regardless of the season, it's worth coming here throughout the year as each season creates its very own special atmosphere. Upon your visit, you may become a witness of how new land is created and share the fascination for this special island as many have before you. Due to its geographical location, Iceland is a hot spot for volcanic and geothermal activities. Glaciers and rivers form the volcanic landscape of the country, coastlines change their shape and mosses grow on solidified lava.
Facing the highest population density of the country, the centre of the country is Reykjavik, its capital. From here you can embark on journeys to the wild countryside of Iceland and explore the island's fascinating nature: glaciers, geysers, volcanoes and waterfalls. In summer, in the period the days get longer until midsummer, Iceland is surprisingly warm, mild and turns green. The enchanting northern lights are the ultimate highlight of the long winter period in Iceland, appearing in all shiny colours imaginable on the skyline.
