Overview

Culture Smart! guides offer a more meaningful experience abroad by informing foreign visitors to the values, attitudes, customs, and traditions of the country they are visiting; they also give readers the practical tools to take part in their new environment, to communicate effectively, form relationships, and avoid faux pas  

The volcanic island of Iceland has erupted on to the world travel scene in recent years. With striking scenes of steaming turquoise geysers set among rugged snowy peaks, miles of black sand beaches, and the majesty of the northern lights, one can only wonder what took so long. But what of the people who call this remote North Atlantic island home? Behind a stoic veneer lies a proud, industrious, and egalitarian people, whose straightforwardness and ability to wing-it have seen them thrive in this beautiful but unforgiving environment. Culture Smart! Iceland will take you to the heart of this plucky Nordic nation. It will equip you with a deeper understanding of your hosts and with the tools to turn your visit into a more meaningful and enriching experience, whatever your reason for traveling.
