A quarterly publication, the print edition of Iceland Review is the longest running English-language magazine on Iceland, celebrating its 45th birthday this year. It’s an important source of information for readers who are looking for first-hand information on Icelandic culture, society and nature.
“Iceland Review was born the same year I was—in 1963. It’s one of the oldest magazines in this country and has always been a quality publication,” says editor Bjarni Brynjólfsson. “The magazine offers insightful features on life in Iceland, profiles interesting Icelanders and spotlights amazing photographs like it has done for so many years.”
Iceland Review is delivered to subscribers all over the world with readers in more than 100 countries and a circulation of almost 20,000.
“The magazine is really a window into Icelandic society. We cover culture and the working life of the nation as well as its wonderful but harsh nature,” explains renowned photographer and deputy editor Páll Stefánsson, who has been with Iceland Review for over 25 years, complementing the editorial content with his stunning photographs of Iceland’s landscape and people.
“Most of our stories are written by English-speaking journalists who have become experts in all things Icelandic. They also provide critical insight into our society because outsiders often see things with a clearer vision than natives,” comments Brynjólfsson, who took over the editorship one year ago.
“Many travel agents who plan trips to Iceland are devoted readers as the magazine is a reliable source of information,” says Brynjólfsson. Iceland Review can also be found in most of the better hotel rooms in Iceland as well as in selected bookstores in North America.
All subscribers are part of Iceland Review’s annual draw to win a trip to Iceland.
