Far up towards the arctic circle sits one of the most beautiful, rugged and mysterious landscapes in the world. Here, the populus speaks perfect English. They don’t mind the sun never setting in the summer and rough it out through the dark weeks of winter. Have fun pronouncing anything Icelandic. The Þjóhátíð festival on the Westman Islands happens in the balmy month of July. Icelanders sing and dance and watch spectacular displays light up the Atlantic. This incredible country has an inspiring array of festivity and nature to experience.
