Wildlife

Sparse yet majestic​

The Arctic fox was the only land mammal in Iceland before humans settled in the country in the 9th century. The rest of the creatures were either marine animals or birds. Today, thousand years later, a wealth of life has adapted to the harsh climate. 

Most animals in Iceland are domestic, such as sheep, cattle, the Icelandic sheepdog and the Icelandic horse. 

The Icelandic horses are not like other breeds, the are smaller than their relatives abroad and you soon see that they are more friendly, intelligent and curious than other horses. These character traits have made them a central part of Icelandic identity. 

The reason for their unique charm is due to their descendants. Only one horse could fit within a Viking longboat when Iceland was first settled. Meaning the settlers took the very best of their stock with them. Therefor, as the settlement period ended, Iceland had a healthy population of the sturdiest, strongest and most intelligent horses from Norway, Sweden and Denmark. 

They also became noted to have five "gaits" (style of walking, such as the trot and gallop) while other breeds around the world have three or four. 

It is also worth mentioning that Iceland has no mosquitoes.  ​​
