Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic and it is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. Because of extreme geological contrasts, the country is sometimes also called as “The land of fire and ice”. You can find here some of the largest European glaciers and some of the most active volcanoes in the world. Iceland is also said to be the land of light and darkness. The summer days are long, the longest days have near 24-hours of sunshine. On the other hand, during winter there are only a few hours of daylight. Iceland offers many adventure possibilities. The local rivers are perfect for rafting or fishing. The Icelandic mountains and glaciers invite to hiking, climbing or skiing. The capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which is home to over two-thirds of the population. Important parts of Icelandic cuisine are lamb, fish and milk products. Fishing has always been an important part of Icelandic culture and heritage. Therefore, many local restaurants specialise in seafood and serve for example cod or salmon. Hákarl, fermented shark, is most likely the first typical cuisine you will hear when talking about Icelandic food.
