Iceland, the country located on the tip of the north pole has not only a strong natural allure but also has a mythical past stretching back to the time when the trolls walked on the earth… or at-least says the Icelandic Sagas in which such creatures featured prominently alongside the human race.

Fun fact: The official name of Iceland is ‘Island’ (pronounced as ees-land), it’s an Icelandic word which means land of ice a.k.a Iceland.
