Iceland - 5/2010

-- Click on "all galleries" (above) to return to this web site's opening screen.

Starting in the year 793 and continuing for over two centuries, groups of Vikings sailed west
from Norway to both ravage and settle the British Isles and the islands north of Scotland.
The Viking raids became less frequent about the year 1000 after their conversion to
Christianity and their foundation of permanent settlements in these new lands.

Our journey follows the Viking's early routes from Norway to the Orkney, Shetland,
and Faroe Islands and then on to Iceland.
