Iceland is often called the Land of Ice and Fire, a land where volcanoes and geothermal heat have made their mark on the landscape, along with the many glaciers and glacier lagoons, a land of pristine and unspoiled nature. The nation’s capital is Reykjavik and almost 2/3 of the population either lives in the city or in neighboring communities. Small picturesque villages dot the shoreline all across the country, most of these rely on fisheries and usually there is a lot of buzz centered around the docks.
