Iceland Regions:
Southwest Iceland — Home of the capital, Reykjavík, and the majority of the island’s population
West Fjords — Sparsely populated, rugged geography
West Iceland — Snæfellsjökull glacier, the islands of Breiðafjörður, and more
North Iceland — Dramatic lava fields, turbulent waterfalls
East Iceland — More fjords and the only international passenger ferry terminal
South Iceland — Home to the most popular tourist attractions, including the Golden Circle
Interior — Glaciated mountains
