      Iceland overview

      Initially settled by Norse explorers, Iceland was established as a farming community. It went on to become an early democratic free state in the 10th century before coming under Norwegian, then Danish rule in the 13th century. In 1944, Iceland gained full independence from Denmark and has established itself as a peaceful, modern country. 

      Iceland is proud of its history, retaining its language, which is based on Old Norse, unchanged for centuries. Icelandic sagas are a window into the country’s medieval past, depicting epic stories of adventure and heroic deeds. The island is known for its arts and music scene, with well-known musicians Björk and Sigur Rós being of international repute. 

      As a visitor to Iceland, it's important to respect their culture and abide by certain etiquette. Perhaps the most important is the ‘leave no trace rule’ whereby visitors shouldn’t disturb the natural areas, take anything away, and stick to the roads when driving rurally. 

      Icelanders are polite and will always say thank you in conversation, however, there is no word for ‘please’ in Icelandic, so try not to be offended if you don’t hear it. Finally, before entering any public bathing site, it’s a rule that you must shower before entering but all sites come with facilities to wash.

      When paying in Iceland, tipping in restaurants isn’t usually required as its customary to have a service charge already applied to the bill. 

      Iceland is also famous for its unique landscape, and the geological wonders of geysers, hot springs, glaciers and volcanoes are a dramatic backdrop to outdoor activities like glacier trekking, whale watching and hiking. 

      What to eat in Iceland

      Seafood is a main staple of Icelandic cuisine. Visitors can enjoy dishes of cod, haddock, salmon, langoustines and herring prepared in a number of ways including grilled, smoked, pickled and dried. While you’re there, try a traditional Icelandic fish stew called plokkfiskur, a hearty dish found in most local restaurants. 

      Icelandic lamb is also a treat for the taste buds. It has a distinct flavour thanks to the animals’ diet of wild herbs and grass. Another Icelandic delicacy is skyr – a traditional dairy product similar to yoghurt often eaten as a breakfast food.  

      If you’re dining on a budget, Reykjavik can certainly cater for you too with great street food spots, food halls and many independent cafes and bistros to explore. It's also a great way to meet local people and learn about their unique cuisine and recipes.
