Iceland - A Song of Ice and Fire



The red, white and blue colours on the Icelandic flag represent the constituent elements of the island: red for the volcanoes, white for the ice and snow, and blue for the sea.



If you're a fan of film and television, you'll know this:

Iceland is the main location for the North in the American series Game of Thrones: A Song of Ice and Fire - the North is the largest and least populated part of the show's Westeros continent.



This is the beautiful North ruled by the Starks "inside the Wall" and the mysterious North with the Wildlings and the Night King "beyond the Wall".



The cast and crew of Game of Thrones have travelled to Iceland 12 times to film the show. Although the show's finale is coming up this year after eight years, it's definitely one of the most unmissable places for Game of Thrones fans to revisit the show.

Iceland - Space Walk



If you're a film buff, you'll know:

Star Trek, Planet Station, Star Trek, Batman Begins, Prometheus, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Thor: The Dark World, Noah's Ark and many other blockbusters have been filmed on location in Iceland.



These sci-fi films are set in Iceland because it is the most extraterrestrial and "sci-fi" place on Earth, with each unique landscape revealing a quiet mystery, as if you were on a lonely planet.


Star Trek movie stills


Although Iceland is situated on the edge of the Arctic Circle and has stunning views of the Aurora Borealis, it has a favourable climate influenced by the warmth of the North Atlantic Ocean, and is situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which makes it a volcanic and geologically active country. The interior is predominantly plain, with sandy, cooled lava plains and glaciers.

Iceland's unique "lunar landscape" makes sci-fi filming even more realistic, without the need for special effects and filters, like wandering on a real alien planet.

Iceland - Coffee Culture



Icelanders love their coffee, and in Icelandic there is even a special word for it: "morning coffee (morgunkaffi)" and "night coffee (kvoldkaffi)". This makes Iceland's per capita consumption of coffee beans the third highest in the world.



Did you know. Iceland doesn't have a Starbucks coffee that is wildly popular in the country because Icelanders have an almost extreme dedication to the quality of their coffee, so Starbucks coffee has no appeal to them.



If you're a coffee lover, you'll want to find a local café on your trek to Iceland to experience the ultimate in Icelandic "coffee culture".

Icelandic national dish - Hákarl fermented shark meat

In addition to this, Iceland produces a wide variety of seafood waiting to be savoured!
