Iceland is an energetic place. Its breathtaking nature is still being formed by the powerful forces of nature, the cliché being the island of fire and ice. Iceland’s houses and its famous swimming pools are heated by renewable energy from both hydroelectric and geothermal power plants. The clean and fresh air is one of the nation’s pride.
