Iceland is a very young country from a geological standpoint, still in the midst of its own creation. Shaped by the forces of nature, the barren landscapes demonstrate the creativity powers of the four basic elements-earth, air, fire, and water in a dramatic way. Active volcanoes, bright green valleys, glacier-cut fjords, black sand beaches and roaring rivers are the most distinctive features of the Icelandic landscape. And although accessible, they still remain virtually untouched
