Its location in the North Atlantic between Europe and North America makes Iceland a natural choice for businesses seeking a strategic base halfway between the world’s two main markets.
Despite its name, Iceland does not experience more disruptions to communications in winter than other northern European countries. All harbors are ice-free year-round, and effective snow-clearance procedures have virtually eliminated closures of main roads in winter.
Since being an island nation, all transport to and from the country is limited to sea and air. Distances in Iceland are relatively short and therefore is domestic goods transport mostly done with trucks, since no railways are to be found in the country. Domestic flight routes and private cars are the main means of passenger transport.
The infrastructure in Skagafjörður is well developed and ready to welcome new businesses.
