20 thousand crowns in food
They’re now in Iceland yesterday published the video where they went over the costs of being a tourist in Iceland. Although they say that is expensive to stay in Iceland say they that much of Iceland outweighs the costs. The video can be seen at the bottom of the story.
“Now we have been here for five or six days and already have spent 200 dollars on food,” says Josh than 200 bucks equivalent to over 20 thousand local currency at the current rate.“Now we have been here for five or six days and already have spent 200 dollars on food.”
“When we left the country we probably have spent 300 dollars in fuel and last night, when we stayed at the campsite, it cost 35 dollars,” he says, but 300 bucks is about 30 thousand crowns and 35 dollars for 3,500 crowns.
Totally worth it
“So as you can imagine, this quickly accumulates,” he says, but the couple was found standing in Akureyri when they took the video. In the video they talk about the costs of being a tourist in Iceland.
“If you want to get a cup of coffee it costs 4 to $ 5 – Starbucks price but not Starbucks coffee. So yes, it’s all expensive compared to other places we have visited, “says Josh, however, states that the expensive accommodation in Iceland is completely worth it.
“But Iceland as such, the country and the people, it adds up. It is not like it is being cheated, this is what things cost here. This is a great place and the price, although it is expensive then you can justify it. ”
Have at least three thousand dollars
In the video says Ashley foreign tourists who come to Iceland should make money for before heading off. The price is higher during the summer than in winter because of the number of tourists who visit Iceland during the summer. Josh discussion ends with these words:
“So what you have much to visit Iceland for a week? At least three thousand dollars, “he says, but there are about 300 thousand crowns. Ashley adds and reiterates that this is the minimum case. So if they can afford to rent a small trailer park, called Camper Van, and he paid them two thousand euros for the week, just over 200 thousand crowns. Insurance and fuel is not included in the cost.
“This is worth get ready it’s expensive.”
