New Issue of Iceland Review Arrives

The 2013 June-July issue of Iceland Review is out. Themed ‘We Are Young’ the magazine celebrates the arrival of summer by interviewing young energetic Icelanders who excel in art, sports, business and politics—and Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, the youngest PM in the republic’s history and the world’s youngest ruling state leader.


Innovation is also a repeated topic in the current issue, such as in Zoë Robert’s features on the many uses and future potential of seaweed and Iceland exporting its expertise in geothermal to developing countries, and Eygló Svala Arnarsdóttir’s article on a tool that helps diagnose Alzheimer’s in the early stages.

Páll Stefánsson’s landscape series is set on the placid seashore of East Iceland and equally striking are Einar Guðmann’s portraits of Icelandic breeding birds. As this is the magazine’s 50th anniversary year, a third photo series gives readers a picture of what Iceland was like in 1963, when the first issue of Iceland Review was published.

In the current issue you will also find Eygló’s portraits of the Southeast Iceland communities Höfn and Djúpivogur, a guide to some of the most intriguing museums in North Iceland, follow Deb Smith on a hike to the country’s second-tallest waterfall and read about the popularity of dried Icelandic fish in Nigeria.

Moreover, you will learn about the country’s latest cultural happenings, some curious facts and figures, the secrets of skyr, the attractions of Akureyri and all about why Iceland is the place to invest.

All the way to Páll’s ‘Last Page’ picture of Harpa concert and conference center mirrored in the Reykjavík harbor, this unusually voluminous issue is packed with diverse stories and colorful images not to be missed.
