ICELAND – Two continents meet in Iceland, lying as it does on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is known as the lan of ice and fire, as both active volcanos and enormous glaciers can be found there. Icelandic nature contains many such contrasting features – lush valleys and expansive deserts, narrow fjords and vast plains, high waterfalls and big lakes.
