The Icelandic highland can be a barren place. 

Because of cold climate the vegetation’s growing period is only about two moths every year and the formation of soil very slow.  The mountains have left endless amounts of ash, sand and lava in the area but in between you can find beautiful spots covered in bright green  moss

If you dream of exploring the great outdoors, observing raw nature and volcanic phenomena, Iceland is undoubtedly one of the best places for this type of adventure
