Known as the 'land of fire and ice', a holiday in Iceland offers probably the most diverse you are ever likely to see in one country.
Sitting astride the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is one of the world's most volcanic regions resulting in some of the most unique geography and surreal landscapes: geysirs, hot pools, active volcanoes, majestic mountains and fjords, vast deserts of black sand, glaciers (including mighty Vatnajökull, Europe´s largest) and impressive waterfalls including Dettifoss, the most powerful in Europe. All this along with the Midnight Sun and, weather permitting, the
Northern Lights from October to March.
Facts About Iceland
Perhaps one of the most surprising facts, however, is that due to the Gulf Stream the weather is surprisingly warm in summer and winter temperatures are usually above 0 centigrade.
Iceland is the second largest island in Europe with a population of just over 300,000. The country lies midway between North America and continental Europe yet is just a 2-hour flight from Glasgow, 2 ½ hours from Manchester and 3 hours from London Heathrow.
