Icelandic Emigration began later than other Scandanavian countries partly due to the isolated nature of the Island. Icelandic Emigration can be hard to trace as Iceland was a part of Denmark and counted among their citizens.
By the 19th century, Icelanders were emigrated to the United States and tended to settle around the Great Lakes. At first attaching themselves to other Scandanavian settlements but eventually establishing their own communities mainly in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The Emigration from Iceland to N-America page gives a list of settlements in North America as follows:
Utah: In and around the Salt Lake Valley. Spanish Fork had a sizable settlement.
