Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz: What is Iceland’s nickname?
A The Kingdom of Glaciers
B The Star of the North
C The Land of Fire and Ice
Iceland’s unique geology gives it both volcanoes and glaciers, hence ‘fire and ice.’ The volcanoes are the result of the country’s location on top of the intersection of two tectonic plates. Meanwhile, Iceland’s northern latitude produces many icecaps and glaciers.
The correct answer is The Land of Fire and Ice.
