What the Heck?


Iceland isn’t called “Fire and Ice” for nothing. It sits on a large volcanic hot spot in the Atlantic’s mid-oceanic ridge, which is why we have so many heated public pools and such clean, geothermal energy to heat homes, schools and factories. In fact the salty phrases “go to heck” and “what the heck” comes from the Hekla volcano, the country’s most active and considered in folklore the “gateway to hell.”
