About Iceland

Iceland is often referred to as the land of fire and ice, but it is just as much the land of birds and orchids. Their numbers run into the millions, vastly outnumbering the people of this sparsely populated, wild land. Iceland is also the land of whales, seals and dolphins, and the haunt of the lone and skinny Arctic Fox, skulking the slopes in search of prey. In fact, Iceland could best be called the land of the naturalist and nature lover, who will be overwhelmed with the abundance of wildlife.

  1. Dom

    THE absolute reference for any naturalist trip to Iceland! Fauna, flora, geology… everything is approached in a very didactic way. Many particularly interesting routes are described very precisely ; during a two months travel across Iceland, I visited almost all the recommended sites and I have never been disappointed! Unavoidable
