Iceland: Add Fire to our Ice
Geologists suggest that islands of Iceland were created when a large meteor collided with Earth 65 million years ago. The mega explosion destroyed dinosaurs and began a chain reaction which pushed the island we know as Iceland up from the sea bed. The Icelandic Sagas recount that in the 860s Floki Vilgerdarson attempted to establish a permanent colony on the island. However Irish monks had visited the island long before he did.
We've added Iceland to our mix of Arctic landscapes. It is an exciting contrast to the glaciers of the Far North.
