Any other tips for visiting Iceland?
Here are a few things it’s nice to know before you go.
Language: The official language is Icelandic, but English is widely spoken.
Currency: Icelandic króna. ATMs are plentiful and you’ll be able to pay by card in most places.
Tipping: It’s rarely expected that you’ll tip in Iceland. Restaurant bills usually have a service charge included – though if not you can tip around 10%. Hotel staff, tour guides and taxi drivers won’t expect a tip either, but if you’ve received exceptional service, feel free to tip.
Vaccinations: You’re unlikely to need any specific vaccinations to visit Iceland, but you should speak to your doctor 4-6 weeks before you leave just to be sure.
