Iceland is one of the European countries that has managed the coronavirus health crisis the best, especially with the state’s offer to all Icelanders (360,000) free tests for the coronavirus, even in the absence of symptoms, before the current massive vaccination campaign.
Yesterday (February 15, 2021) Iceland had only 6 new cases, 00 deaths and 26 active cases … The country can therefore be visited in this spring of 2021.

From a plate tectonics perspective, the northwestern part of Iceland is on the American Plate and the southeastern part is on the Eurasian Plate. therefore, a hot spot is located just below Iceland, more precisely under the Vatnajökull massif. This unique situation generates significant volcanic and geothermal activity on the island, located mainly along this graben, where the magma is closest to the surface.

Reykjanes Peninsula, the bleak lava beds.
A lava field, also called a lava plain or lava bed, is a large expanse of nearly flat-lying lava flows. The extent of large lava fields is most readily grasped from the air or in satellite photos, where their typically dark, nearly black color contrasts sharply with the rest of the landscape

    The issue of secure credit is something customers are increasingly concerned about,

    as well as by finding a loan from a legitimate lender. The interest rate for my loan is 2%

    and the minimum amount I give as a loan is € 5,000 and the maximum amount is € 10,000,000.
