Iceland is well known for having sharp contrasts, and for good reason too!
Although approximately 103,000 km2 (40,000 square miles) it is the least populated country in Europe, the population only tops 330,000, with almost 80% of the country uninhabited. The landscape is filled with stunning waterfalls, black sand beaches, glacial lagoons, volcanoes and glaciers, including Vatnajökull which is the largest in Europe. Iceland is also teeming with wildlife, from the Atlantic puffins, arctic foxes, whales and dolphins there is plenty to see.
