The Icelandic people are intensely connected to their country’s culture, history, and nature, so much so that you will often find references to the Icelandic sagas in daily conversations

Icelanders know their own country exceptionally well, and love spending time outdoors – and who can blame them, for their land is fantastically wild and astoundingly beautiful!
