Little tip from when I went if you fancy a drink in the evenings. Download the appyhour app from the play store, this gives you a list and times of all the pubs/bars that have happy hour.

The Aurora can put on a show any night of the year if solar conditions are right and it's dark enough to see them, only saw them very faintly on our visit.We went to Iceland in January with Wizz. The main thing thats been missed off this trip is the transfer at around £40 each if I remember right . A further £120 each to do two day trips, we did Golden Circle and South Coast, is needed too. It is £9 a pint but there are bars with Happy Hours and that makes it £5 ish. Cheapest meal is around £14 but plenty of choice at £20. You can get an Icelandic Hot Dog for £4. Our flights were £14 each way but for two of us we ended up spending in total about £900 for 3 nights. Having said that if you're going you may as well do what you can whist you're there. Tip if you go self catering take a flask and make a sandwich for your days out.
Just checked the latest prices and trips and transfers are cheaper now than they were in January ( exchange rate?) so I have updated post to reflect this.re.is/

Been twice over the last two years both times end of October and we got to see them on several occasions. You can also do Iceland on a budget. If you want to go on a drinking session and eat at top restaurants then yes you will probably need to remortgage the house, however if your sensible and be a little tight with your pennies then it’s not at all bad.

We didn't see the Northern lights (although we have from Tromso) but the thermal spas are amazing. We were fortunate to do one in the fog and a hail storm which was a really surreal experience. Definitely do the Golden Triangle if you get chance, the scenery is fantastic. [Image]


Saw them every night in Tromso- highly recommend!

I believe there is actually less chance of seeing them before Christmas. I think April time is best
WIZZair .
Love to go but cost of living is astronomical so will cost the accommodation costs every day

January is definitely best if you’re in Tromso

You'll enjoy it , we did. Got some brilliant photo's. Booked our trips and transfers with these. re.is/
We never had one penny of Icelandic money , everywhere takes cards, even the Hot Dog stall. Good if you have a card that doesn't charge for foreign transactions. The Blue Lagoon is s bit of a rip off, basically it's a left over excavation from the construction of a thermal power station. Better off going to one of the many public pools fed with thermal springs for a 10th of the price. We did find a nice bar about halfway down the 'high street' , on the left going down hill. Can't remember the name but happy hour was from 17.00 until closing. Wrap up warm, it wasn't too bad in town but out in the countryside it was really chilly. All the hot water is from thermal springs and smells of Sulphur, luckily bathing in it doesn't make you smell the same. The cold water is really pure , so don't waste money on bottle stuff. If you are into wine buy a few bottles in Luton Duty Free on the way out.
Can't wait for my trip in March. I have paid about same price for fly with easyJet

Wow. Thank you SO much Yorkie 😁
dont forget £7000 to eat for those 4 days.
Have been 4 times over the last 10 years, 3 times over Christmas and yes the cost of living has gone up a lot during that time. Tips include buying your alcohol at
The airport when you arrive to keep In your hotel room, book the blue lagoon in advance especially if your going during the really busy periods, so your not disappointed and book a hotel or B&B with breakfast included, so you can fill up first thing to keep you going for the day! There are plenty of local outdoor pools that you can visit, which cost about £10 each and are great when it’s freezing cold! Depends how brave you are feeling but you can hire a car and do the golden triangle that way! Enjoy your visit, it’s a beautiful country and very relaxing place to go for a holiday
We came back from Reykjavik 2 weeks ago, amazing place. Saw the lights from the John Lennon Peace tower and captured on our phones. Very Very expensive out there but loved ever minute. The Golden Circle tour is a great day out.
The locals told us not to hire cars in the winter months due to the very changeable weather conditions. Roads disappear under snow and tourists have even found themselves driving on frozen rivers. Don't forget the CDW.
Wish I could take this up

CDW?

CDW?


Collision Damage Waiver - extra insurance that caps your liabilities should you damage the car (which is more likely in Iceland in winter months)
Amazing price we spent about 10 times that
Stunning place. Along with Tromso, these are my favourite places in the world. We didn't see the Northern lights (although we have from Tromso) but the thermal spas are amazing. We were fortunate to do one in the fog and a hail storm which was a really surreal experience. Definitely do the Golden Triangle if you get chance, the scenery is fantastic.

Maybe in the less built up areas but if people are going from Keflavik to Reykjavik and then doing the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon it should be fine. Studded tyres are a wonderful invention!

Main thing to be careful of is the wind whipping doors open

Do the Geysers in Golden Circle. We did the one with the big monster truck which picks you up, drives up and down mountains near enough lol and it was about £150 each but worth it for the experience, otherwise you go on a crammed coach which would still won't be cheap.

Studded tyres aren't much good if you can't see the road Did mention needing insurance for ash damage to car as the winds sometimes whip that up too.
Go visit "Icelandic Street Food", one of the cheapest place to eat with unlimited refill on food! They also gave me a token for a free beer at their bar next door

Just checked, a meal at jamie olivers restaurant seems to be about 18 quid for pizza. Nothing crazy. Other places around 12 quid. Sound like our prices tbh.
Bargain !! One problem the other half is a school teacher... 😪😪😪😪😪
Prices not too bad at this Bast..d for food either, bastard.is/?la…=en

I want here, was amazing.

Just letting you guys know
Probably my best holiday yet.
So expensive but what a beautiful country to visit! You need to got to Blue Lagoon while you are there.
Just a note for all. At this time of year there is limited light. We went around the same time and we only had about 5-6 hours max of daylight. 8am is relatively dark!

I’ve been there, it’s super expensive.. I hope it’s helpful to others
Amazing place, we went in February this year.
Personally the prices wasn’t too much of an issue not any worse than any major city!

We were fortunate enough to see the northern lights a couple of times, and snowmobiling across a glacier was incredible.
Northern lights are very much non-guaranteed as a natural phenomenon - but take a tip from the Locals in Reykjavik: if you want to give yourself the best chance go at the end of October or the end of February. This is when the seasonal cycle is at its most turbulent - although we are now entering the lowest stages of the 11 year solar cycle! the next peak is 2025!
