Trip Report Budget Tips for Iceland

Jump to last reply

I wanted to give an update for people going to Iceland .It was a great country.I stayed at the nicest place I've been at on vacation. Castle and Embassy luxury apartments in Reykjavik. I stayed at their Embassy apartments, which was perfect .A few blocks from the main square and on a quiet street near the Russian Embassy.The upgraded us to a two bedroom for free. It had everything and for three people was cheaper than the youth hostel would be

Make sure to try the famous hot dog stand in Reykjavik,it is called something like The Best.Anyhow it really was.The Blue Lagoon was nice, but it was too touristy for me.They charged the equivalent of 28 euros,so hardly any locals go there anymore.Be sure to bring your own towels and bathing suits, because the rental is high.
Bakery goods and coffee are pretty cheap when eating ou in Iceland..Also dont miss the Coca-Cola.It is the best in the world because they use real sugar and icelandic water.
Of course there are so many must sees on the ring road a little off of it.You will take alot of pictures.Waterfalls ,Geysir,Volcanoes ,Glacier, etc.
The people all can speak English, and are very helpful.Also classic American cars are popular,which was amazing to me.

Check out the night life in the capital.Especially in the summer
