The tourism boom in Iceland continues. Annual visitors are expected to soon outnumber the locals by seven to one. But like the Icelanders, tourists have to cope with the risks of volcanic eruptions.
Iceland's biggest national park includes volcanoes, the continent's biggest glacier and spectacular vistas. It is also home to magnificent waterfalls powered by mountains of melting ice.
With their "Huh!" Viking war chant - inspired by fans of Scotland's Motherwell club - Icelandic supporters were a hit at this year's Euro football championships - resulting in a spike of tourism to Iceland.
Iceland in winter? The country's breathtaking landscape - volcanoes, glaciers and huge waterfalls - is just as magical as in the summer. And an exceptional adventure awaits those who travel during the cold season.
