"Land of Fire and Ice," the number-one cliché of Iceland's travel industry, has little bearing on Iceland's peaceful and remote northeast corner, which has no fearsome volcanoes, no mighty glaciers, no one-of-a-kind geological marvels. No romantic villages are nestled in majestic fjords. Not a single restaurant, hotel, museum, church, or saga site exerts any significant pull. And yet travelers come here time and again, just to gaze at birds on misty moors and walk to lonely lighthouses. It may have no star attractions, but the northeast corner is an ideal meeting of pristine beauty and blessed solitude.
