Iceland is a gorgeous country that is well known for its charming landscape – and temperature! It is also a lesser known trend hub and has produced some excellent artists over the years, ranging from Bjork to Sigur Ros. Given that is it the least densely populated country in Europe, there is also an abundance of lush and beautiful landscape to be seen. These include the National Parks, which are some of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty in the whole of Europe. It also has a fascinating history, which is well displayed in the many museums that are around the country. These provide for an interesting insight into the folk customs of this magical land, focussing mainly on the late nineteenth century. Some particularly unusual finds include items crafted from reindeer or fish leather, as well as toys and utensils. Kjarvalsstaðir museum is devoted to modern art of both Iceland and Internationally.
