Iceland – A natural wonder

Iceland is a country of sharp contrasts. A place where fire and ice co-exist. Where dark winters are offset by the summer’s midnight sun. A country where insular existence has spurred a rich and vibrant culture.

From a geological standpoint, Iceland is a very young country, still in the midst of its own creation. Shaped by the forces of nature, the barren landscapes demonstrate the creativity powers of the four basic elements. Active volcanoes, bright green valleys, glacier-cut fjords, black sand beaches, and roaring rivers are the most distinctive features of the Icelandic landscape. Although they are very accessible, they still remain virtually untouched by human civilization. In a fast-paced world of sprawling development, Iceland’s pure nature and empty expanses stand out as a luxury.

Despite the name, “ice” only covers about 10% of the land. But still represents the largest glaciers left in Europe. It represents a source of pure water and symbolizes the purity of Icelandic products. Icelanders are proud of their close ties to nature, and dedicated to preserving this natural wealth through responsible conservation. According to the Environmental Performance Index, created by the World Economic Forum in 2012, Iceland is the world’s greenest country.
