Full DescriptionIceland's specialties are its contrasts. The capital of Reykjavík offers urban life with an unbelievable cultural variety, yet you can find yourself in total isolation as soon as you travel into the barren lava landscapes of the island. Fire and ice have not only shaped the unmistakable face of Iceland, they have also produced a special kind of people. Regardless of volcanic eruptions, financial crises, or long winters, Icelanders love their country. So will you once you are on the trail of the Lagerfljot Worm Monster, dancing through Reykjavík's long party nights, or bumping into a solar-powered Coke machine in the middle of the East Fjords. In this entertaining and informative book, Kai Oidtmann leads you to places that cannot be found in other guides. He shares his extensive insider knowledge and presents a picture of Iceland so charming that you will want to buy your plane ticket immediately.
