Visit Iceland 2011
The word natural must be used with care. But for one small European nation it is the perfect description because everything about it reflects a natural way of life that is healthy and adventurous. Iceland – naturally.
Iceland is a land of contrasts with glaciers, volcanoes and fantastic midnight sun. Every season has its own unique charm and there are always opportunities to experience new things, discover beauty and be mesmerized by the freshness and colors of nature.
Think of Iceland and there are several familiar associations: hip Reykjavík, the beautiful therapeutic Blue Lagoon, or perhaps our musical exports Björk or Sigur Rós. But this land of boiling mud pools, spurting geysers, glaciers and waterfalls is also an adventure playground. Its breathtaking landscape is also an inspiration to artists and photographer.
