comprising the island of Iceland and its outlying islets.
It has a population of about 313,000 inhabitants and an area of 103,000 kmē.

Iceland as you can see in the photo gallery is volcanically and geologically active on a very large scale.
The interior consists of a plateau with sand fields, mountains and glaciers, we can see many glacial rivers which flow to the sea.
Iceland has a temperate climate in part thanks to the Gulf Stream.
|I wish to thank Lorie Shannon for sending us the photos of this beautiful country.|
