ABOUT ICELAND

The oldest democracy in the world

Iceland is home to the very first parliament in Europe - the Althing, which was founded in 930 in Þingvellir ("thing fields" or "assembly fields). Thingvellir is a national park in southwestern Iceland, about 40 km northeast of Iceland's capital, Reykjavík.

The land in-between

Iceland is one of the two (in the world) places where it is possible to see two tectonic plates meeting above the surface of the earth, the North American and Eurasian. You can check it out, also by diving between them!

Where nature beats the records!

The country is known for its unparalleled nature but not only because of its beauty. Iceland can be proud of having the most powerful waterfall in Europe (Dettifoss), the biggest in Europe and third in the world glacier (Vatnajökull) and the highest erupting geyser in Europe (Strokkur).

The country driven by its resources

Thanks to the constant, volcanic activity of the land, most of the homes in Iceland uses hydro and geothermal energy to serve all the heating and electricity needs for their owners.
