About Iceland Ferry
Experience Iceland, an island custom made for adventure holidays, a country that lends itself for all kinds of outdoor activities like trekking, climbing, walking and mountain biking. You will find here the greatest variety of dazzling scenery and unspoilt wildness, including huge waterfalls, glaciers (including the Vatnajokull, the largest in Europe), geysers, steaming hot pools, portentous peaks and vast lava desert. Iceland is located in the North Atlantic Ocean on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and therefore a hot spot of volcanic and geothermal activity. Much of the population has cheap pollution free heating, because of the availability of geothermal power. With a population just over 290.000, of which around 180.000 live in Reykjavik, the small, but beautiful capital of the island, it is the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with an average of just 3 persons per sq. km. The island covers about 39,756 sq miles. The average height is 500 m. above sea level. The highest peak is the Hvannadalshnjukur (2119 m. high). Iceland was settled by people from Norway and Ireland in the 9th century. It is said that the first settler was the Norwegian Viking Ingolfur Arnason. He settled down where Reykjavik now stands. The inhabitants of Iceland still speak the language of the Vikings, although, of course, over the centuries it has undergone some changes. Iceland is one of the richest countries in the world. The economy of the island largely depends upon the fishing industry. The second largest export-industry of Iceland is the travel-industry. Considering that Iceland is Europe's westernmost country the climate is milder than might be expected. Iceland has a temperate oceanic climate, as it is warmed by the Gulf stream. The weather on the whole is quite changeable. You can expect a mix of sunny and cloudy days, rain and wind. In the winter it is likely to snow in the North, while in the south it is relatively mild. Iceland has every part of the year something different and new to offer to its visitors. Besides its beautiful natural features, the Blue Lagoon, a natural geothermal spa, the Westmann Islands (Vestmannaeyjar), famous for its immense seabird colonies and the Great Geyser, close to the capital, you can visit the Arnesinga Folk Museum in the villlage of Eyrarbakki and the Vidimyri Turf Church, one of the finest examples of Icelandic architecture.
