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. Compared to 2011, 2012 saw a 13.8% and 32% rise in summer and winter visitors to the country respectively, of which over 25% were arrivals from either the UK or USA. Andrew Evans, the author, made his first trip to Iceland in 1998 and has been back a dozen times since. He has written a handful of books including the Bradt guides to Ukraine and Kiev.
