About this book

Replete with lava flows, colossal glaciers and thundering waterfalls, Iceland is one of Europe's most unusual destinations. This brand-new edition of Bradt's Iceland guide gives everything needed to break free from the pack and explore Iceland, a country increasingly accessible and affordable, on your own. Containing information on remote offshore islands, the uninhabited interior and Reykjavik's bustling music and art scene, this remains the definitive guide.

"Full of fascinating details in writing, graphics and photos, Iceland delves deeply into the country in a format that often resists depth. Evans knows the country, and it shows."
