Icelandic ecoregions

Iceland’s ecoregions encompass a diverse range of landscapes shaped by volcanic activity, glaciers, and isolation. The Arctic tundra dominates with its windswept terrain and resilient vegetation. The highlands feature dramatic mountains and geothermal fields. Coastal areas host thriving marine ecosystems, while geothermal hotspots create unique geysers and hot springs. Together, these ecoregions offer a captivating tapestry of natural beauty and ecological resilience.
