Fire & Ice


Iceland, a Nordic island nation in the middle of the Atlantic. Iceland is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Massive glaciers are protected in Vatnajökull and Snæfellsjökull national parks. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik, which runs on geothermal power and is home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history.. See Iceland with help from Wyld Family Travel’s detailed Iceland travel guides. 


Iceland has a large network of buses that can get you around the country and the city of Reykjavík. You will need to hire a car to get to some of the more remote spots in Iceland. There are good quality highways should you hire a car in Iceland.


The official currency you need to use in Iceland Is the Icelandic Krona. We recommend that you get a Revolut travel money card, that can be loaded with multiple currencies and has nearly non-existent withdrawal fees to save you money.


Iceland is expensive, there is no other way to put it. The average hotel price in Iceland for a couple is around $170 USD per night.


The most typical food in Iceland involves fish, lamb, or Icelandic skyr (a type of yogurt). In Iceland, you will find hearty meals awaiting you. A meal at a mid-priced restaurant for 2 should cost around $90 USD while coffee will set you back $4.55 and a loaf of bread $3.34
