Brother was there a few years back and said that you would really want to love geology cause there ain't much else there. He was there a few years back and said it was shockingly expensive but apparently it is cheap as chips now.I'm hoping to visit Iceland this summer. Sounds like a fascinating country - geologically the youngest country on earth. And now is the time to go as it's relatively cheap due to the fall in the value of the kroner. I stress the 'relatively' bit though: we're talking about a country where not so long ago people used to come on shopping trips to Ireland because it was so cheap in comparison to Iceland!
Fair enough, I'm only going on apocryphal evidence. I was in Norway about a year after my brother was in Iceland and we got to comparing prices. Similar prices at the time and Norway is darn expensive for everything."Cheap as chips"? Can't imagine that. A friend of mine was there a year ago and remarked on how pricey it was - and he's Scottish. Also, my research on hotels, tours etc leads me to believe it's now about comparable to Ireland in terms of prices, if anything maybe even more expensive.
