    These are really great tips! Traveling to Iceland is the hot trend right now… I am surprised at the prices of local items and the cuisine! I’m with you… I like trying new foods, but the items you described aren’t very appealing. Still… the landscape pictures you took are beautiful and likely worth seeing in person!

      Yes the fermented food isn’t appealing at all. However that doesn’t mean you can’t find good food in Iceland 😀 I just wanted to share Bottomline, Iceland is a must visit place. If you get the chance, go for it

    Wow! These are such great tips. I know that Iceland is growing in popularity, but I have yet to see a list of tips like this one. Thank you for sharing, I will definitely be saving it for future reference. I really don’t know if I could eat the fermented meat. I might have to become vegetarian for this trip!

      Thank you, Michelle, I’m glad you got some useful tips here. Oh, and don’t worry about the food. You can still find good food at some places in Iceland. Some Icelanders I met were even saying that no one should eat that food 😀 The Vikings obviously had a weird taste in food but that is also slowly changing in the last couple of decades.

    wow! I have read A LOT about Iceland but this post is super informative! I still want to go! These prices remind me of Bora Bora! I also had no idea the blue lagoon was man -made! I still want to go!

      Thank you, I’m glad you learned some new things about Iceland. It indeed is one of the most expensive countries in the world. As for the Blue Lagoon, it does look really good but it’s always super crowded and there are so many other beautiful sights worth seeing.

    This is a great tips for people thinking about visiting Iceland. If I go, I will skip the Blue Lagoon like you suggested and for sure make my own sandwich and rent a car. I wonder if traveling to Iceland will be cheaper when the number of tourists are decreasing. Btw, your pictures are just extremely amazing!

    I completely agree with you about skipping the Blue Lagoon! There are so many natural – and free – hot springs that I found to be much more enjoyable. I think renting a car vs. joining tours depends on a lot of things: whether you’re solo or with others and how far you want to go. Gas is expensive, after all. But that’s cool about being able to sleep in your car anywhere.

      Absolutely, as Iceland is vastly uninhabitted and tourists aren’t aware of many hidden gems. Yeah, gas is expenslive (like everything else) but at least you have the flexibility of going wherever you want to go and you can cover much more compared to guided tours (which are also extremely expensive) 😀

    It is so beautiful, though, I feel you can overlook the price tag. Plus, that kind of beauty in such a desolate place…I’m inclined to believe in trolls, too.

    Even though there are a few problems, still Iceland is the best touring place. I like it because of its natural surroundings and the drinking culture. Here, you will get the world’s best beer.
