Hi everybody,
I'm starting to plan my summer holidays and was thinking of going to Iceland. Any tips? Of course I have already searched information online but I'm still wondering: is it (relatively) cheap now, after the economic crisis and the devaluation of the crown? How much could an average holiday (say 10-12 days, decent accommodation etc. in July or August) cost? Thank you so much in advance for your help

Hallo Lorenzo Lilli.

You are right, Iceland is now relatively cheap after the recent devaluation of the Icelandic Króna.
But it's impossible to give you any prices, all depends on where you want to go, and how you will be travelling. In a rent-a-car, your own car or...?
Normally in 10-12 days you can drive around the island and see the main touristic attractions.
For driving in mountainous areas you need a 4WD car, preferably a jeep.
I suggest that you get in contact with the tourist offices or the tourist information sites for more detailed info.
July is the preferred month, but perhaps also the most expensive.
