NORÐUR Journal

Tales from the North

The Arctic is beautiful – but unforgiving. For nearly 100 years, 66˚North has made life and activity possible where otherwise there would be none. These are stories of adventure, exploration, and the extraordinary everyday.

People
Geothermal Springs

As an Icelander, bathing in geothermal springs is a very big part of our culture. It comes from living on a volcanic island, with cold harsh weather, but plenty of natural warm water around.

Announcements
