A. Iceland is a small country to the north-west of Europe close to the Arctic. It has a unique

landscape with small lakes and fast rivers, volcanoes, snow and ice peaks. These striking

panoramas exist in gorgeous harmony. The fact that the relief of the country is still

developing makes Iceland a country of extraordinary nature and breathtaking views.

B. In spite of its hard northern climate, the island is very attractive to tourists. Many people

who have visited the country once want to go there again and again. The country turns

skeptics into poets and optimists. It’s not only because of the views but also because of the

local people. Icelanders are friendly and hospitable and welcome guests. It really

compensates for the cold harsh climate!

C. An adventurous traveller would never mistake Iceland’s scenery for any other because of

the boiling water fountains and the steam coming from the earth. Smoking volcanoes attract

the bravest tourists. Iceland is the only place in the world where you can hike up a volcano

and even go inside. There are guided walks to the glaciers, large masses of slowly moving

ice, too.

D. Icelandic weather is unpredictable throughout the year. Bright sunshine can easily change to

cold and miserable weather within a few hours. In the summer, rain is typical in Iceland.

From September to May, when the temperature falls, it often snows, especially on the south

and west coasts.

E. Horses are widely used in Iceland for farming and for tourists. From the Viking Age they

have become a part of Iceland’s culture. They look like My Little Pony toys but they are

exceptionally strong, so they can do heavy work and survive cold winters. The horses are

good-natured, which is perfect for new riders. Guesthouses and travel companies across the

country offer horse rides and tours.

F. If you decide to visit Iceland, you’ll never regret your decision. The only thing that can

spoil your trip is the weather. That’s why it’s very important to get a reliable weather

forecast whatever season it is. If you wear appropriate clothes and have some smart heating

devices, neither rain nor snow can ruin your trip.

G. Hengill, a place near Reykjavik, is a famous landmark of the country. It is a field of more

than 7 thousand hot springs. The water from the springs is used to warm the houses and to

fill the open pools in the capital of Iceland. The water comes from below the earth where

the temperature is about seven thousand degrees.
