Powerful Iceland: the land of volcanos, valleys and geysers 3/28/2016 • Beatrix Vangor
This volcanic island in the Atlantic with its magnificent landscapes seems to be a part of another planet. Having visited Iceland once, people can't help falling in love with this mythical kingdom.
They say, Icelanders still believe in elves. This is not surprising: this land is full of legends. The language Icelanders speak nowadays hasn't been changed from the ancient times, so they are still able to read thousand-year-old texts. Another interesting fact is that Iceland was one of the last territories on Earth to be inhabited by people. Still doubt this island is an unearthly miracle? Just look at these amazing photos and be careful: they may leave you breathless.
The land of geysers
The word "geyser" is Icelandic. The largest geyser on the island is called Geyser, but it no longer erupts. A lot of active ones can be seen in the geyser valley of Haukadalur, one of the most famous places of Iceland.
