The north of Iceland truly is a place of contrasts. It’s long valleys and peninsulas are interspersed with mountains, lava fields and smooth hills carved out by rivers. As it’s so near the Arctic Circle the midnight sun is invariably awe-inspiring.
The cornerstone of Icelandic culture is the Icelandic language, which has spawned a literary tradition that dates back to the ancient Icelandic Sagas. These are tales of violent blood feuds, traditions, family, and character.
