National Geographic's Iceland Adventure Map is designed to meet the unique needs of adventure travelersdetailed, durable, and accurate. Iceland includes the locations of thousands of cities and towns with an index for easily locating them, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for expressways, motorways, and more. Transportation within and beyond the country is made easier with the locations of airports, airfields, railroads, ferry routes, and lighthouses. What sets National Geographic Adventure Maps apart from traditional road maps are the hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse and unique destinations within Iceland. Outdoor activities abound on the island and activity symbols note popular locations to ski, golf, camp, fish, and swim. Travelers will find plenty to explore in Iceland’s cities as well, including World Heritage sites, museums, churches, and other points of interest.

Went to Iceland for 10 days, and I have come to expect great things from my National Geographic Maps. This one, however, was lacking when it came to campgrounds. Three times we attempted to find campgrounds marked on the map- and they were not there (and apparently had never been there). This was super frustrating, and disappointing from a map company I had learned to trust. Luckily the visitor center had a cycling map with all the "real" campgrounds listed that saved us. I hope National Geographic can check this out and fix it for future travelers. Otherwise- the map was fine, roads and landmarks seemed to be accurate.
