Through the ages sea ice has made life more difficult for the Icelanders, cooled down the air flowing around the country, closed down sailing routes and covered the abundant fishing banks. In the old days when there would be a large mass of sea ice, people would even fear polar bears being carried on drift ice from Greenland. On the other hand, it is the ice that contributed to the naming of the country, Iceland.
