I’ve been hearing a lot that Iceland is a very expensive country. When you think about a Blue Lagoon entrance costing €60, a small bowl of fish soup €15, a main course, be it meat or fish for dinner at €30, regular guesthouses at €90 with a kitchen and a shared bathroom with no breakfast included; when you think about all this before travelling there, you honestly think, that people kind of exaggerate it, it can’t be thaat bad. But it can. Haha.
What we did was take a 23kg bag of food and a small camping stove. We would fill up the thermos cups with hot tea, which was particularly wonderful after walking in the strong wind or snow. We would eat tinned tuna and salmon with salad or beans, tomatoes, avocados, lots of snacks. Very healthy, haha.
Another thing is renting a car - since many hotels/guesthouses are off the road and you have to drive in gravel, it’s best not to rent the cheapest/smallest car. We went for a Suzuki jeep and took out a gravel insurance. Chips on the screen from passing cars are normal, so it’s better to be safe and pay a bit extra. We’ve spent a lot of time in the car and it was extremely comfortable. Not worrying about damaging the tyres definitely helped as well.
