Iceland is a Nordic island nation sitting in the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. A young island, it is very volcanically and geologically active. Housing 321,857 residents, it is the most sparsely populated country in Europe.

Although the climate is very cold, the world traveller was able to warm right up at Hveravellir. A nature reserve situation on top of a beautiful geothermal area, it has smoking fumaroles and pools of blue, boiling water.

At the Reykjanes peninsula lies on one of the world's major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Here lies the "Bridge Between Continents" - A bridge spanning over a fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
