invite you to browse our site and learn about this wonderful country. But
first, we'd like
to introduce you to some of the basic facts and travel possibilities in
Iceland - and debunk a few myths. Whether you're planning to stay a month
or drop in on your way to Europe, what you learn might surprise you.
The first thing you
should know about Iceland is that it is nowhere near as cold as its name implies.
The average January day in Reykjavik is about the
same temperature as it is in New York City. This means that a winter trip is
just as viable as a summer visit, and the costs are much lower. Why the old Norsemen
who first came here gave such an icy name to a such a green country is a mystery,
but there is an old legend: the first Viking to discover the island wanted to
keep it all to himself, so he named
the green country “Iceland” and the icy country “Greenland,” hoping that future
settlers would head further north.
