Well, Iceland has always been a place of wonder. From the crystal ice-strewn black sand shorelines to the moss-covered lava fields. Oh, let's not forget Eyjafjallajökull and the more recent Barðabunga. Iceland is a Geologist´s wet dream. Lunar landscapes, treacherous slopes and columnar basalt; Iceland is another world. And that's exactly the kind of storytelling that comes out of Iceland.
Fun fact: Medieval Europeans used to write Iceland into their stories as the gateway to hell, and later Jules Verne's entryway into the center of the earth.
