Hallgrímskirkja / Church of Hallgrímur in Reykjavík.

Icelanders enjoy freedom of religion under the constitution, though the National Church of Iceland, a Lutheran body, is the state church. The National Registry keeps account of the religious affiliation of every Icelandic citizen. In 2005, Icelanders were divided into religious groups as follows:

* 80.7% members of the National Church of Iceland.
* 6.2% members of unregistered religious organisations or with no specified religious affiliation
* 4.9% members of the Free Lutheran Churches of Reykjavík and Hafnarfjörður.
* 2.8% not members of any religious group.
* 2.5% members of the Roman Catholic Church, which has a Diocese of Reykjavík

The remaining 2.9% includes around 20-25 other Christian denominations while around 1% belong to non-Christian religious organisations. The largest non-Christian denomination is Ásatrúarfélagið, a neopagan group.

Religious attendance is relatively low, as in the other Nordic countries. The above statistics represent administrative membership of religious organisations which does not necessarily closely reflect the belief Religion in the population of Iceland.

Winter Sports

A winter sport is a sport which is played on snow or ice. Most such sports are variations of skiing, ice skating and sledding. Traditionally such sports were only played in cold areas during winter, but artificial snow and ice allow more flexibility. Common individual sports include cross-country skiing, Alpine skiing, snowboarding, ski jumping, speed skating, figure skating, luge, skeleton, bobsleigh and snowmobiling. Common team sports include ice hockey, curling and bandy. Winter sports often have their own multi-sport tournaments, such as the Winter Olympic Games. More articles about Winter Sports
