Why is Iceland in the continent of Europe yet its so far away and its close to America?
Islands do not physically belong to any one continent (since a continent is a continued piece of landmass), however, they do belong to continents in political terms. Iceland was conquered by Scandinavians, a European ethnic group, for a long period of time. Because of this, it has been dominated by European culture, language, etc. So it is said to belong to the continent of Europe.
