This new title in the Crossbill Guides Series covers Iceland, a country well known for its superb landscape, unique geology and splendid birdlife. As any Crossbill Guide, the Iceland title gives detailed route descriptions (16 in total) and site descriptions (close to 50) for naturalists throughout Iceland, covering the best sites for birdwatching, finding wildflowers, seeing marine life and, in the case of Iceland, the most remarkable geological sites. This information comes with extensive descriptions of the ecology, geology, history and flora and fauna of Iceland.
