Iceland is an island of 103.000 km2 (39,756 sq.miles), about one-third larger than Scotland or Ireland. Its highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur, rises to 2.119 m and over 11 per cent of the country is covered by glaciers, including Vatnajokull, the largest in Europe.
Iceland is a hot spot of volcanic and geothermal activity: 30 post-glacial volcanoes have erupted in the past two centuries, and natural hot water supplies much of the population with cheap, pollution-free heating. Rivers, too, are harnessed to provide inexpensive hydroelectric power.It has a population of about 320,000 it's capital and largest city is Reykjavik, whose surrounding area is home to approximately two thirds of the national population.
The main mode of transport in Iceland is road. Iceland has 13,034 km of administered roads, of which 4,617 km are paved and 8,338 km are not. The ring road was completed in 1974 and the last communities were connected to the road system only a few years previously and there were only short stretches of roads paved before that date. Today, roads are being improved throughout the country and freeways are being built in and around Reykjavik. A great number of roads remain unpaved to this day, mostly little used rural roads. The road speed limits are 50 km/h (30 mph) in towns, 80 km/h (50 mph) on gravel country roads and 90 km/h (56 mph) is the limit on hard-surfaced roads. Iceland currently has no railways.
An RV is an excellent way to discover the many attractions of Iceland.
