Iceland in a few words...

The interior of Iceland is a plateau, characterized by its lava fields, glaciers and mountains that feed numerous rivers and some of the most impressive waterfalls in the world. Although it sits just outside the arctic circle, the island is temperate thanks to the warming effects of the gulf stream. More than two thirds of the islands 364,000 inhabitants live in or around the capital city of Reykjavik, leaving the vast majority of the island as pure untouched and uninhabited wilderness.

For lovers of remote, wide open spaces, it doesn’t get any better than this.
