Why visit Iceland?

 

Iceland is a unique island, located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

It‘s rugged landscape is young and still very much alive.

The population is around 320.000 with a land mass spanning over 102.000 km² (40.000 sq. m.)

Resulting in the most sparsely populated nation in the whole of Europe and ranking 9th as the most sparsely populated nation on earth.

Despite this, Iceland is ranked the 14th most developed country in the world.

Statistically Iceland is quite unique, for example ranking nr 1 in gender equality, 1st in income equality, 1st in the environmental friendly index (98% renewable energy), with the smallest army in Europe (no army actually), one of the most geologically active countries in the world, Reykjavík being the most northern capital in the world with the worlds second strongest democratic institutions and loads of other fantastic statistics.

But, that‘s only the beginning.

We have a limitless water supply. Considered one of the worlds best drinking water and all tap water is drinkable, all around the country.

Safety won‘t be an issue as, again, Iceland ranks as one of the safest nations in the world.

There are no dangerous animals (we only have the cute ones), locals all speak English and many speak some Scandinavian and violent crimes simple aren‘t an issue (5th safest in world).

All around Iceland you can camp with your van for a small fee, or none at all.

In almost every single small town around the country you‘ll find a swimming pool or at least a WC facility with shower accessibility, for free or a very small fee.

If this isn‘t enough for you, in the summer time you‘ll experience round-the-clock brightness and in the winter time you might just behold the Northern Lights in all their glory.

Magnificent waterfalls and geysers are scattered all around the country. In all, the nature is otherworldly. Ranging from moon like plains with steam rising from the ground and glacier littered river lagoons to the sunny valleys and fjords with their calm rivers and small forests enhancing the landscape. It‘s infatuating, It‘s extreme, it‘s special, it‘s unique and we make it simply easy.

We haven‘t even begun on Iceland‘s culture, food, art, music, history or sports which all have a special place in the world in some way.

We could go on and on… but there are better ways of getting a glimpse of what Iceland really has to offer, so we turn you over to these sites where you can experience some amazing photos and videos of Iceland at it‘s best.
