Only the north coast of Iceland touches the Arctic ocean, but said coast is the farthest from the north pole of all the other north coasts of the countries which touch the AO.

In fact, IIRC around 50 years ago the Arctic Circle slipped off the edge of the Icelandic mainland.

Now the only Arctic areas of Iceland are the northernmost part of the island of Grimsey, and the rapidly eroding islet Kolbeinsey.
