Each day during the 6 month eruption, (August 31st 2014 - February 28th 2015) in Holuhraun, Iceland emitted more Sulphur dioxide (SO2) then all of Europe combined. Europe is estimated to emit about 14.000 tons of sulphur dioxide every day but the eruption in Holuhraun was estimated to emit 20-60.000 tons each day. So little Iceland polluted more than all of Europe combined!
There are 175 swimming pools in Iceland and they cover 32.000 m2 (344.445 ft2). You can find a swimming pool in every town in Icland. The Westfjords has 400 m2 (4305 ft2) of swimming pools per 1000 inhabitants. A world record per capita!
Iceland is not as cold as the name suggests. The average temperature in Reykjavik in January is 0 degrees celsius (32 F) and in July 11 degrees celsius (52 F). Anything above 15 degrees celsius (59 F) is considered a heatwave and Icelanders are wearing t-shirts and shorts!
Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is the deepest lake in Iceland, almost 300 m (1000 ft) deep. The glacier is retreating by 200 m (650 ft) per year so Jökulsárlón is growing rapidly as the glacier melts!
