Iceland Travel Guide : An Elemental Symphony of Wind, Stone, Fire and Ice. Hrsg.: Turtle Travel Edition
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. Iceland is, literally, a country in the making the natural elements work in harmony to power its veritable volcanic laboratory: geysers gush, mudpots gloop, Arctic gales swish along silent fjords, stone towers rise from the depths of an indigo sea, and glaciers grind their way through cracked lava fields and the merciless tundra. The sublime power of Icelandic nature turns the prosaic into the extraordinary. A dip in the pool becomes a soothing soak in a geothermal lagoon, a casual stroll can transform into a trek across a glittering ice cap, and a quiet night of camping means front-row seats to either the aurora borealis curtains of fire, or the soft, pinkish hue of the midnight sun. Beyond the torturous clash of ecological anomalies, it s hard not to be deeply touched by the island s awesome beauty few leave the country without a pang and a fervent vow to return. Iceland has that effect on people it turns brutes into poets, and sceptics into believers. This book offers information on Iceland and its most notable places.
