In the article they say:
Iceland, of course, has no borders, has remote locations, is stable as a country and has virtually no world enemies. Its people are happy and the nation always ranks highly on the Global Peace Index. If world conflict erupts, Iceland is one of the few stable nations in the world unlikely to get caught up in the middle.

Great article on the New York Times that reminds us that Iceland is an all year around destination. While the Iceland summer, with its almost 24 hour daylight is magical, the winter in Iceland certainly has its appeal. This article is mainly about what to do in the Reykjavik capitol area, but there are bunch of things to do and see in the countryside. Getting out of town, away from the light pollution, will increase your chances of seeing the magical Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis for instance. And exploring the waterfalls and glaciers of South Iceland in their winter costumes can be a great experience. Hotel Rangá specializes in the Northern Lights. The Northern Lights season runs from early September to April. Check out our current Northern Lights special offer.
The northern lights webcam is up again at Hotel Rangá! For several years we have had a web camera outside Hotel Rangá pointed in the direction where the northern lights most often appear. It was very popular with our website visitors and very often caught a great view of the aurora borealis flickering over Hotel Rangá. The camera broke last winter, but today we’re happy to report that we’re up and running again! The new camera has already seen some aurora action. You can view it here: Northern Light Webcam

A very nice review from Cherina Hadley about Iceland and Hotel Rangá:
Ridley Scott‘s newest movie, PROMETHEUS, the prequel to Alien is coming out in a few days. It was partially shot on location in South Iceland and features some nice imagery of the raw volcanic landscape found in the Icelandic interior near the famous volcano Mt. Hekla.
