Iceland travel basics
What currency is used in Iceland?
Iceland uses the Icelandic króna (Check out xe.com for the most up-to-date currency conversion–they have a mobile app too!)
What time zone is Iceland in?
The entire country of Iceland is in the Greenwich Mean Time time zone – the original, the one and only.
What are Iceland visa/passport requirements?
If you’re planning to spend less than 90 days in Iceland/the Schengen area, you can get by using just your U.S. passport–no Visa required. (Except for all those hot dogs you’re planning on buying, ba-dum-tshh!)
However, your passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the date you leave the Schengen area.
What language do they speak in Iceland?
Icelandic is the main language spoken in Iceland. And good luck with that.
Where to stay in Iceland
The capital city of Reykjavik is worth the visit alone but, though Iceland is isolated, it’s packing tourism possibility out the wazoo.
When you decide where in Iceland you want to visit, I recommend reading hotel reviews on Tripadvisor, then booking your room through Booking.com (my favorite booking site).
