The relatively small Island country of Iceland (~40,000 sq mi) boasts
a population of just over 320,000, making it the most sparsely populated
country in Europe. However, what Iceland lacks in populace, it more
than makes up for in its truly spectacular landscape
and geologically active, the island features impossibly steep mountains
and volcanoes rising straight out of the Sea and continuously hewn
by ancient, relentless glaciers. The volcanoes have produced immense
fields of jagged lava rock and mosses overtop a hotbed of geothermal
activity which yield geysers and hot springs all while providing
power to most of the Island.
endless sculpting of the mountains and grinding of the plains provide
for large, pulverized valley floors between the soaring snow covered
peaks. Glacial melt produce countless spectacular waterfalls, unbelievable
caves of ice and lagoons choked with icebergs
Island's northerly location provides a spot ideal for chasing the
Aurora Borealis (aka The Northern Lights) during the long nights
have visited Iceland numerous times in Winter, chasing the elusive
Northern Lights, Snowy Scapes, Icy Caves and Gurgling Molten Volcanoes.
