Ptarmigan – Rjúpa
According to Icelandic folklore, the Virgin Mary once summoned all the birds into her presence and commanded them to walk through a fire. All obeyed with the exception of the Ptarmigan, which is why it is now unique among birds in having feathered feet. To punish this disobedience Mary laid a curse on the ptarmigan, proclaiming that the bird would from now on be constantly persecuted and killed by its brother, the hawk. Ever since, the hawk has persecuted, killed and eaten the ptarmigan, not remembering that they are brother and sister until he reaches her heart. Upon that realization, the air resounds with the hawk´s howls of grief.

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.
