Zip Facts about Iceland:

  • There are no military forces in Iceland. The unemployment rate is very low, and crime here is minimal
  • Iceland exhibits better gender equality than many other countries, women are welcomed into the workforce, politics, and the clergy
  • There is long-standing support for the arts with several artists attaining “state artist” status with government funded studios, which will eventually revert to public museums
  • Iceland has full 24 hours of sunlight during June and July and many Icelanders enjoy midnight sun outdoor activities
  • One of the most popular foods in Iceland is Skyr, a very soft cheese with the consistency of yogurt, high in protein with almost no fat
