Iceland is known by its astonishing nature, with landscapes full of geysers, glaciers, volcanoes covered by snow, and geothermal sources. A geologically young land, Iceland is located on both the Iceland hotspot and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which runs right through the island. This combined location means that the island is highly geologically active and has many volcanoes. Dettifoss, located in northeast Iceland, is the largest waterfall in Europe in terms of volume discharge. The Vatnajokull glacier is the biggest in Europe.
