- A Whole Different Latitude
Iceland is overflowing with spectacular contrasts and surprises. For every cold, white iceberg, there’s a scalding hot lava flow. Where there’s a frigid waterfall, a steamy geothermal pool won't be far away. And don’t let Iceland’s proximity to the United States (it’s less than five hours from the east coast) fool you. It’s remarkably different from North America and from the rest of Europe. Iceland’s unique ecology, friendly people and unmistakable sense of style combine to form a nation like no other on the planet.
