Iceland

Additional Information

Find more Iceland information on the sites listed below.

Iceland is an island of almost 40,000 square miles, the same size as Ohio. Iceland''s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, is 6,500 feet.

Iceland has the largest glaciers in Europe - in fact, 11% of the country is covered by glaciers. The coastline is dotted with more than one hundred fjords and green, fertile valleys extend from many of them.

Iceland also has more than 10,000 waterfalls and countless hot springs. A lot of the country is technically uninhabitable, with the moss-covered rocks of ancient lava flows and tall treeless mountains, but these moonscapes – the NASA astronauts actually trained in Iceland before the first moon landing – are perfect for exploring an other-wordly looking place.
