Seems like everyone wants to go to Iceland these days, but everybody’s scared of how much Reykjavik will cost. This is all the expenses from my four days Iceland, from £4 milkshakes in Laundromat to £79 on one meal. We saved loads of money by booking an amazing house in the countryside and eating three dinners and breakfasts there. We also saved money in Reykjavik by packaging up the hotel breakfast for lunch, until mum and dad arrived with the money.

The cost of Iceland

Iceland is expensive – the cost of the clothes in the shops was shocking and the toastie we had in Vik was £10 – but it was worth every penny.
