The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

One of the most remote areas of Greenland, Ittoqqortoormiit is accessible only by air or, a few months a year due to the sea being frozen nine months out of the year, by boat. The Scoresbysund Fjord on the the side of Ittoqqortoormiit is the largest and longest fjord complex in the world. One of the last hunter societies in the world, Ittoqqortoormiit is south of the world's biggest National Park, where visitors can view polar bears, narwhals, and arctic foxes.
