Iceland is something of a paradise for Garou. It has many places that thin to the Umbra, and its landscape is pristine and as wyld as wyld gets in the modern world. Gaia's beauty is absolutely staggering on either side of the veil. That beauty comes at the price of isolation, however, and most people (and garou) as well as spirits have a certain curious and stilted view of the world.
As such, the Umbra in particular is a very dangerous place, and Garou must be careful to fit into the natural rhythms that spirits here have been in since before their arrival with the vikings. The overwhelming presence of the Wyld often gives even smaller animal and nature spirits immense strength, and connection to even bigger entities. Those that would deal with them need to be extra careful to treat fairly with them and be polite.
Wyrm and Weaver spirits are nearly non-existant in most places on the bawn, though PCs may discover their influence in unexpected places as they begin to explore.
For those that have visited Reykyavik, for all its small size compared to larger cities in the world, the Umbra in the capital of Iceland is incredibly Weaver heavy as the young population continues to keep it as modern and fast paced as the rest of the world.
