Icelandic Times - Issue 17. 2013
They used to call Iceland “Europe’s Best Kept Secret,” as tourism was as undeveloped and unknown to most. That has all changed today, with a highly professional tourist industry easily meeting world standards and leading the way in innovation.
However, there are still so many secrets for the adventurous traveller to uncover. While the major sites, such as Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir are wildly popular, many visitors are trying different tours and writing rave reviews on sites like TripAdvisor.com. Yet,there is still so much more to be discovered in this country of secrets and hidden jewels.
In this issue, we are introducing not only some new places to visit but also new fields of interest, such as health. Iceland has some of the purest water in the world. The sheep feed on the mountains in summer, eating herbs and grasses which, in turn, flavour their meat. No unnatural additives, drugs or steroids are pumped into them, making them a very healthy food choice.
