Fireland was a country in Lyra's world. Its capital was Reykjavik[1] where the annual Rally to the Pole balloon race began.[2] Fireland sat between the German Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. There was a city there called Akureyri.[3]

Aurick Leif, in 894, travelled here and conquered the land before returning to Norroway and persuading his community to join them here.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In The Golden Compass, the Modern World Map depicted a country called Iceland instead of Fireland.
  • "Fireland" is named as such either to contrast it against our world's Iceland, or as a reference to its volcanoes.
