Fun to know
Iceland is a country of myths and legends and we love to tell stories. The only difference between the stories in East Iceland and the rest of the country is that ours are all true.
There are a few things you only find in East Iceland and not the rest of the country. The flower bluebell is only native to East Iceland and so are the reindeer that we are so very proud of.
