If adventure sports put you off, think again. Eskimos offers such a wide range of activities, it's hard to maintain that somber attitude. There's dog sledding, kayaking, rafting, horseback riding, snow safaris et al to enthrall you and test your bravado quotient. At the same time, appreciate nature's bounty in the form of fjords, glaciers, lava formations, geysers, waterfalls, lagoons and what have you. Be sure to get hold of the right gear and guide.
Icelandic jewellery design is slowly gaining recognition for striking imagery and bold design. The work of Hansína Jensdóttir has become known for its bold finish and style. Hansína is both sculptor and goldsmith, and in her jewellery she uses combination of various metals, such as gold and steel. This conflict of unlike materials enhances the contrast in her work, which sometimes takes on the symbolic hues of ice and fire. In addition to metal Hansína uses Icelandic stones to add a further resplendence to her designs.
