Iceland Placeholder

Iceland is the real story of “fire and ice”, its landscape marred and shaped by millennia of ever-changing weather, glaciers and volcanoes seemingly constantly on the tipping point of eruption. It is a natural marvel, complete with the galactic light-show we know as the Northern Lights and one of the most abundant opportunities for photography in our world today. Iceland isn’t a country for vacationers – it’s a country for explorers. Just ask the Vikings.

Capital City: Reykjavik

Language: While the official language is Icelandic, many of the citizens are multi-lingual and nearly everyone speaks English to some extent. English-speaking tourists will have no problem getting around.

Currency: Icelandic Krona (ISK). ISK is currently 11 for 1 USD, but don’t let that fool you into thinking Iceland is cheap. It’s far from it. Alcohol will cost a mint, and food won’t be much less. Our advice? Stock up at Duty Free and keep reserves in your room. Pre-drink before you go out and limit yourself to a few beers once you’re out. Same goes for food. If you’re smart about the money spent, you’ll absolutely love everything about Iceland.

Power Adapter: In Iceland the power sockets are of type F. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Crime & Safety: A non-concern. Murder rate? Zero. Violent crime? Lowest in the world. Drug use? Lowest in the world. Iceland is very close to Utopia, which is why it’s expensive!

Emergency Number: 112
