All you ever wanted to know about Iceland... and then some!

Iceland is an island right between two continents. The Gulf Stream makes it inhabitable, even though the island browses the Arctic Circle. Because of its geographical situation, it has sometimes been called a bridge between Europe and America, a stepping-stone between two different worlds, the old one and the new.

In fact, the inhabitants possess a highly original and unique culture, and there is nothing quite like this new-born island, where you can witness the creative processes of nature up close, complete with active volcanoes, shifting glaciers and dreamy wilderness wastelands.

This country was little known a century or so ago, but in a fast-changing world, it has become a place of interest for those who wish to study or work in a new environment. Downtown Reykjavík is a melting-pot where a great variety of languages can be heard on a sunny day. It is a challenging place for student exchange, and as unemployment is unknown, there are plenty of jobs to be had if the fancy takes you.

As for the countryside, it has become a popular place for vacationing, an absolute must for river-rafters, glacier climbers, mountain bike champions, 4x4-drivers, bird watchers, salmon and trout lovers and other adventurers.

Icelandic society can seem a little obscure to the newcomer. If you are an expat and feel a bit lost, you may find useful information in these pages. If you are feeling adventurous and thinking of changing places, you've landed on the right site.
