Iceland’s elements at work
Iceland’s spectacular landscapes are almost otherworldly, shaped by contrasting natural forces of fire and ice. Why is Iceland so fascinating from a geological perspective?
Iceland has it all, from black-sand beaches to dramatic fjords, volcanic craters, geysers, majestic waterfalls, and vast glaciers. Iceland’s dramatically diverse landscapes often lie just a short distance apart. Its wilderness is even more fascinating because it seems almost untouched by humans. It gives the Icelandic terrain a mystical feel, like something out of a fairy tale.
