About the map
Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic, with a population of around 370,000 and an area of 103,000 km2, making it one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe. It’s situated just below the Arctic Circle and is situated northwest of the United Kingdom.
Greenland is its closest neighboring island, which is a distance of about 300 kilometers away. Iceland is the westernmost European country with Reykjavik being the northernmost capital in the world.
The capital and largest city is Reykjavík, with Reykjavík and the surrounding areas in the southwest of the country being home to over two-thirds of the population. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. The interior consists of a plateau characterized by lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, while many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands.Iceland in Google Maps

Iceland is known for having more glaciers than all of continental Europe combined. They stand out clearly in white. For example, Vatnajökull, Hofsjökull, Langjökull, and Mýrdalsjökull Glacier are the largest in Iceland. The country is geologically unique with approximately 130 active and inactive volcanoes in all parts of the country. Despite being located at a high latitude, its climate is temperate because the Gulf Stream brings heat through its ocean currents.
