Welcome to Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic European island country located in at the convergence of the Arctic Oceans and the North Atlantic, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The biggest city and its capital is the Reykjavik, with the adjoining regions in the southwestern area of the country being home to two-thirds of Iceland’s population. The country has a total land area of 40,000 sq miles, and about 320,000 in population; which makes Iceland the most sparingly populated nation in Europe.

Iceland is also closer than you think. Reykjavík, Europe’s northernmost capital, is closer to New York than Los Angeles and only 2-4 hours flying time from most major cities in Western Europe.
