Wrap Up

Visit Iceland

Iceland is a Nordic island nation that lies above a hotspot, the Iceland Plume, which is believed to have formed the island itself. It is characterized by ongoing volcanism and geothermal phenomena such as geysers and hot springs. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power.

Living sustainably is second nature to the Icelandic people. They enjoy sharing information about their lifestyle, which can include baking their bread in the ground or swimming year-round in one of their 120 geothermally-heated public swimming pools. For these reasons, it’s no wonder the World Economic Forum ranked Iceland as the world’s friendliest country for tourists.
