What you should know before traveling to Iceland

Iceland is a small island country in the Atlantic Ocean. It is located between Europe and North America. The name, Iceland isn’t appropriate. This country is 10% covered with glaciers and it has a mild climate. If you decide to visit it, don’t go in December. Iceland is close to the Arctic Circle, so the daylight varies. In December, you will experience 20 hours of complete darkness. The size of Iceland is 103,000km². It has the population of 321.000 citizens. The capital city is Reykjavik.

Iceland is a member of the Schengen Agreement. This means that if you come from a country that is also a member of the agreement you don’t need a visa. You should know that Iceland isn’t a member of the European Union, so it doesn’t have the same laws and regulations as the members of the Union. 

In order to get to Iceland, you must go by plane or by boat. The main airport is Keflavík. It has a good connection with other European cities. It is 40 kilometers away from the capitol. Remember that a taxi, from the airport to the Reykjavik will cost you ISK 12.000. If you want to go by boat, you can use Smyril Line. They operate weekly from Denmark.
The official language is Icelandic. It is a very different language than English, German or French, so you cannot understand it. However, a lot of people talk English and Danish, so you can use those languages. You should know that here, 12,000 means 12. 

The official currency is ISK (Icelandic króna). 1 euro= kr 152. Iceland is very cheap and offers a lot of promotions.
