Icelandic Times in Chinese issue 1
A growing number of Chinese travellers who come to visit Iceland is a reason for joy for the inhabitants of this tiny island. It is inspiring to meet people from different cultures, especially one as rich as China’s and we hope that every visitor will find a warm welcome wherever they go during their stay in Iceland. The countries’ friendship has been sealed by the governments with the institution of the Free Trade Agreement, which has opened up a world of opportunities for both nations and their collaboration.
With the increased interest of the Chinese people in Iceland, Icelanders are adapting their services to better suit our guests. This is the sole purpose of this first Chinese edition of the Icelandic Times - to bring you helpful information as well as entertainment served in a way that is the most convenient for you.
So what should you expect whilst visiting Iceland in the winter?
The changing of the seasons is always an enchanting time. Icelanders prepare for the winter darkness when, at midwinter, the luxury of daylight can only be enjoyed for few hours a day. Along with staples such as candles and Christmas lights, sanguinity and optimism are no lesser of importance. Many claim that this romantic season is their favourite, with the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights, snow covered mountain tops and utter unpredictability when it comes to the weather.
The Land of Fire and Ice
These are exciting times as Iceland has certainly lived up to its reputation over the past weeks with the awakening of a large volcano system buried deep under Dyngjujökull, an outlet glacier of the country’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. This has resulted in a spectacular eruption that continues every day to provide a dramatic picture of nature’s power. In this feature packed edition we bring you insights into the science behind mother nature’s ferocious display, along with a stunning feast for the eyes capturing these events—and what a sight it is! Already, the new lava field covers an area larger than the entire capital area and it continues to grow by the day, so who knows what the future holds?
