Destination Paradise Posts Iceland 4 K Relaxation Film

Jan 6

Destination Paradise has recently posted online a one hour long Iceland 4K relaxation film taken by an aerial drone. This is a YouTube video that will not just make a person feel calm but also discover the excellent sights found in Iceland. Iceland has many amazing sights with its dramatic landscape with geysers, hot springs, volcanoes, and lava fields. It has massive glaciers that are protected in the Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the residents live in the capital, Reykjavik, which is powered by geothermal plants and is home to the National and Saga museums that show the Viking history of the country.

Iceland is a Nordic island country located in the North Atlantic Ocean and the least populated nation in Europe. Despite its name and having a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle, Iceland has a temperate climate because it is warmed by the Gulf Stream. Most of its islands have a polar climate and the summers are chilly because of the marine influence and the high altitude. Despite ice only covering around 10 percent of the country permanently, the country got its name from a Viking whose daughter drowned en route and his livestock starved to death. The depressed Viking climbed a mountain and saw a fjord full of icebergs, motivating him to name it “Iceland.”

Iceland is closer to continental Europe than to mainland North America, although it is closest to Greenland, which is an island of North America. Iceland is generally included in Europe for historical, political, geographical, linguistic, practical, and cultural reasons. Geologically, the island includes portions of both continental plates. The closest bodies of land in Europe are the Faroe Islands, Jan Mayen Island, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides, and the Scottish mainland and Orkney. The nearest part of Continental Europe is mainland Norway, while mainland North America is much farther away.

Iceland is the 18th biggest island in the world. It has about 30 minor islands, including the sparsely populated Grímsey and the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago. Glaciers and lakes cover about 14.3 percent of the surface of Iceland and only 23 percent is vegetated. Geologically, Iceland is included in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which is a ridge along which the oceanic crust spreads and creates new oceanic crust. This portion of the mid-ocean ridge is situated above a mantle plume, causing Iceland to be above the surface of the sea. The ridge marks the boundary between the North American and Eurasian Plates.

Iceland has a number of geysers, including Geysir, from which the English word is derived, and the well-known Strokkur, which erupts every 8 to 10 minutes. Most residents have access to cheap heating, hot water, and electricity because of the abundance of geothermal power and rivers and waterfalls that can be used to generate hydroelectric power.

The climate of the coasts of Iceland is subarctic. However, the warm North Atlantic Current results into generally higher annual temperatures compared to most places of similar latitude in the world. In spite of its proximity to the Arctic, the coasts of Iceland are ice-free through the winter. Ice incursions are rare and the last one occurred in the north coast in 1969.
