Icelandic Currency:  Icelandic Króna
First settled by Norwegian vikings in 874 AD and located in the North Atlantic with only a small population of around 300,000 people, Iceland is quite literally a gem. Eco-friendly (generating hydro and geothermal energy from its active nature), nature's finest (volcanoes, geysirs, and waterfalls), and a belief in elves and trolls, Iceland is a place you will want to make a holiday destination. Enjoy the blue lagoon, northern lights, and incredibly rich culture in under a week along side its somewhat interesting cuisine of either fermented shark of an entire sheep's head. With even a Phallological Museum, yes, a museum dedicates to penises, this is a unique holiday. Relax and enjoy the lavish life of the Icelandic people which you would never experience elsewhere. Friendly people, plenty to see, and much to do, you're in for a real treat.
