How much does it cost?

A question on everbody´s libs when they travel and for a good reason. We all want to keep our budget within limits, althou time to time we like to treat our selfs. But here is a short piece on the Icelandic Currency and how much it is worth.

A country full of Elves, Trolls and Sea Monsters, that's Iceland.

There is nothing logical about it, and some say that the Icelandic people are totally mad – But it´s true, we believe in Elves and Trolls, that´s just the way it is! (at least some Icelanders do – Our boss included.) Elves and trolls and are common conversational topics in Iceland, at least when locals meet up with travelers, we´ll tell you stories about haunted buildings in the countryside, or sea monsters spotted in lakes and waters across the country – All over a pint or two of course.

What kind of car should i rent on my trip to Iceland?

What are your plans for your trip? Where are you going and what time of year? How many people are you travelling with? Often if you‘re just visiting downtown Reykjavík or just rolling through the golden circle a 4x4 is not always necessary.
