What Things Cost in Iceland

Typical Prices for Common Items

The Traveling Professor just got back from running two small group tours to Iceland.  We spent 5 nights with each small group.  Our itinerary consisted of visiting Reykjavik, a tour of the Golden Circle, a tour of the dramatic South Coast, a walking tour of the city, as well as a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon.  Touring Iceland with a small group makes sense money-wise since we take advantage of sharing transportation costs.  But what do things cost in Iceland if traveling on your own.  We visit that topic today in our blog post.

We're Off to Iceland

Northern Lights Tour

small group tour iceland and northern lightsOn Tuesday I board an Icelandair flight from Boston to Reykjavik, Iceland.  We will meet 13 travelers there for a small group tour of Iceland and the Northern Lights.  Although I have been to Iceland several times, never for the Northern Lights.  We hope Mother Nature cooperates and gives us some cloud-less days.  I've also been answering a lot of questions on Iceland, mainly about how cold it will be.  I'm anticipating temps in the 30's and maybe the 40'.  Take a look at our blog post to see what will be going on on our small group tour to Iceland and the Northern Lights.
