Value

The interior of Iceland is usually referred to as the central highland or simply the highland (Hálendið). It covers 40.000 km2 of the island (103.000 km2), and forms one of the largest territories in Europe which has never been inhabited or cultivated. Hálendið is considered one of the last great wilderness areas in Europe.

The central highland contains volcanoes, glaciers, voluminous rivers and waterfalls, colorful hot springs, vast lava fields and broad expanses of black sand, all contrasted with oases of vibrant but vulnerable vegetation. Collectively, these natural phenomena and magnificent landscapes form one of the most vibrant areas in the world. The power of the natural forces at work there, including the interplay of fire and ice, continuously form & create an imposing and dramatic terrain.
