Iceland in December! | Costs and Budget




Hey guys!

At the end somehow I did manage to squeeze in one more final trip abroad in 2017. In all honesty Iceland was nothing like I expected . I did not know that such beautiful, natural places existed on earth. I felt like I went back in time and saw the world as it was before humans changed nature. What I loved about it the most was that although there were many areas that were made habitable and had all the essential things we are used to having, they have preserved most of the places and it is all nature. Majority of the things we saw were free entry, just nature as it is without any input by humans.
Oh and when you go there please drink the tap water there!!! It's liquid gold. Never have I tasted such pure and tasty water. I can't really describe it, you have to try yourself.

In this post I will cover the costs of going to Iceland in December. However, if you want to see more of our trip be sure to check out my vlogs on my youtube channel that I will be uploading soon!

Iceland is the fifth most expensive country in the world so be prepared when you go. Regardless, if you want to cover the main things you'll be fine since entry for most places are still free. The only thing that will cost you a lot is FOOD! Food is very very expensive in Iceland. We took advantage of the 23 Kg baggage allowance with British Airways and took lots of food with us which came in very handy.

Trip length - 4 days, 3 nights
Flight and Apartment - £270
Blue Lagoon with Transport to the airport  - £92
Classic Golden Circle Tour - must go! - £50
Airport transfer from airport (one  way) - £25
The northern lights would've cost us another £90. However, we were unlucky as it was too cloudy in the days were there to see the northern lights.
In total main trip cost us - £437

The Apartment we booked was called Apartment K. It was beautiful and I would recommend booking an apartment in Iceland rather than a hotel. We were provided a living room and kitchen so in the evening we were able to heat up the food we brought with us enjoy our meals.

We booked the Classic Golden Circle Tour through Grayline before we got there.
If you are able to drive in iceland and can hire a car, I'd recommend doing that instead of booking this tour. You can go anywhere you want to and stop anywhere to take pictures. Although I must say if you're worried about driving in heavy snow in December, you shouldn't. As well as that the Golden Circle tour covers very interesting places.

You will need roughly £500 when going to Iceland, including smaller spending but please take advantage and go while you can. I hope the country doesn't change too much over the  next 50 years. It's somewhere I'll definitely visit again.
