Nice to know when you are searching for apartment in Iceland
Right in the middle of the Northern Atlantic Ocean lies a peculiar small island called Iceland. It has been there as long as humans have been on this earth, and have had settlers in centuries, yet it just seems as though the world has discovered this island of natural treasures within the last decade.
Iceland is a country in Europe, however it’s not technically connected to the continent, as it’s located right on the border where the tectonic plates divide the Euro-Asian and North American plates from each other. The special location has resulted in a highly unique landscaping, which attracts more and more tourists every year, looking for an experience of something wildly different from the climate they’re used to.
Iceland has a population of just about 370.000 (2021 estimate) residents, who live on a combined area of 102.775 sq. km. This is the lowest population density in the entire Europe, which means there’s plenty of untouched nature to explore.
The landscapes are in general a huge reason why Iceland has sparked interest from tourists in the last decades
People come to visit the black sand beaches in the south, which are featured in globally famous tv-series Game of Thrones and Star Wars. The hexagon shaped rocks create an almost magical backdrop to the unnaturally, yet very raw and organic dark beaches.
If this doesn’t spark interest, Iceland is home to hot springs, which are heated by the lava running close to the surface caused by the split in the tectonic plates. There are both hot springs made into calming and regenerating spa’s, but in other places, the heat causes the water to burst out of the ground in huge clouds of steam. The phenomenon is called geysir, and you can experience it in various places across the island. Along the already mentioned sites, Iceland is home to glaciers, mountains, volcanoes (some active, some not, however always safe to be around) an incredible amount of waterfalls, more sheep than people, and an overall stunning tundra environment.
The small population of Iceland has for many years meant the country was kept as a kind of internal secret between northern Europeans. Despite the small population, Iceland is still home to a university with almost 14.000 students, elementary and middle schools in almost all cities and villages, several hospitals, an international airport with flights to and from both Europe, North America etc., and a stunning capital called Reykjavik with a more fast-paced city-life vibe than the many cozy small fishing villages placed along the coasts.
Even though it’s quite chilly in the winters, Iceland is a great choice for people looking for stunning surroundings with great benefits in terms of citizen satisfaction, which has been sky high in the last few decades. The people are welcoming and the food is delicious and consists typically of fresh tender lamb. Overall, it’s a treasure just now being discovered by the rest of the world.
