Iceland is, following the rapid decline in the strength of its currency, one of the most economical places for tourists to visit. This is the opinion of a This is London Journalist, as reported by Visir.is.
Travel industry experts are reportedly expecting a “mini explosion” in the number of visitors to Iceland.
It is well-known that Iceland was once one of the most expensive destinations in Europe, but things aren’t as they once were. Following a series of large falls in the value of the krona, restaurant tables and hotel beds are now at sale prices.
A room at the achingly trendy 101 Hotel now costs British tourists GBP 164, whereas it was as much as GBP 265 last month. Similarly, a substantial three course meal in a top restaurant like Domo, the Seafood Cellar or Orange now costs only GBP 55 instead of its previous GBP 89.
Last but not least, a pint of beer is now just GBP 3.50 instead of GBP 5.60.
In addition to this, Iceland’s low cost airline Iceland Express is still offering flights to Iceland from as little as GBP 69 each way including taxes.
With Iceland Express offering cheap flights to colourful Reykjavik from 19 top destinations in Europe (six during the winter season), there really has never been a better time to visit Iceland, it would seem.
