The Icelandic territory is mostly mountainous, with reliefs that run from west to east and reach at least two thousand meters only in wo cases, in the Hvannadalshnjúkur, The highest point in the country and in Bárðarbunga. One of the main features of  Iceland  is the presence of many volcanoes, of which over thirty are active. This island is rich in fresh water, resent both in liquid and solid form, the Vatnajökull Glacier is the second largest in Europe; the three major natural lakes are the Vingvallavatn , the Lögurinn and the Mývatn . The longest rivers have a total course of around two undred kilometers, Þjórsá , Jökulsá á Fjöllum and Ölfusá / Hvítá are also those with the largest river basin; sometimes on the occasion of volcanic eruptions near the glaciers they can have devastating floods, with consequent serious amages on human infrastructures. The Icelandic coasts are rugged and rocky towards the north, while in the south they leave space for low and sandy coasts, the overall development is 6,088 kilometers, in many places the sea re-enters the island with fjords that  owever do not reach the grandeur of the Norwegian ones . Almost the entire surface of Iceland is given by the main island , the other islands that surround it are considerably less extensive, Heimaey, Hrísey á Eyjafirði, Hjörsey í  Axaflóa and Grímsey the largest one. Inside we will find mainly a sandy desert plateau, mountains and glaciers, from which many glacial rivers begin their run towards the sea crossing the plains.

A spectacular view…Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with its drop of some 62  meters and a width of 25 meters.

Here the icebergs, thanks to the continuous action of the sea, are smoothed in the most disparate shapes and size, until they became pretty gems and open-air sculptures.
Breiðamerkursandur, glacial plain of Hornafjörður, is a favorite destination for lovers of photography and Wilde nature, a magical place out of time to meet seals and admire the orcas dive into the waves.
The amazing colors of the fragments of ice are perfect to be immortalized from the first light of dawn, in a landscape that is constantly changing , whit glimpses and shots really special and equally fascinating appear under the midnight sun for absolutely unique shots.

Fjallsárlón is a glacial lake at the southern end of the Vatnajökull Glacier. The tongue of the Fjallsjökull, which starts from this Glacier, reaches the lake, then breaks into icebergs that cover its surface.
The show that we can admire is probably even greater than the previous one, cut is much less known and the number of icebergs floating in its waters is significantly higher.
