Do I Need to Tip in Iceland?
In Iceland, service workers like waiters, taxi drivers, and hairstylists receive a reasonable wage and do not expect any bonus payment from their customer. With that said, it is not considered rude or an insult to tip in Iceland. People are always happy to accept a tip if you are pleased with their service. Like anywhere else in the world, a nice tip will probably surprise your server and put a huge smile on his or her face.
It should also be noted that some service workers, such as bartenders, restaurant workers, and tour guides work long hours (while you are enjoying that 11-hour tour of the South Coast, they are on the clock!) at relatively low wages and would be happy to accept a tip as a bonus. So if you are pleased with your tour, the conversation from your bartender, or the otherwise excellent service, feel free to show it!
