South Greenland

South Greenland is an area of contrast between green pastures with sheep farms and the ice fjords and glaciers and big jagged mountains.  This is an area which  Norse-Icelandic viking settlements and ruins. Fishing is abundant in the endless rivers and lakes, and hiking is excellent, with lots of dirt roads and hiking trails between the sheep farms.  Summer climate and hot springs contribute to abundance of fresh vegetables and fjord kayaking is popular. You will find remains from the Viking settlements in UNESCO World Heritage gems such as Qassiasuk and Igaliko.

Why Iceland?

Accessible via a short, five-hour flight from the east coast of the United States, Iceland is a lot closer than you might imagine

Glaciers

Despite its rather misleading name, only 11% of Iceland is covered by ice. That said, it is home to Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, as well as 268 others.

Volcanoes

Volcanic eruptions in Iceland happen, on average, every five years. Although international media coverage surrounding the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption might lead one to believe otherwise, volcanic eruptions in Iceland tend to not have much impact on daily life.
