Is Iceland expensive?

From my ‘freqently asked questions’ page…

At a day to day level the costs are about the same as london, if anything a little less outside of Reykjavik. The tourist industry for the most part is focussed on attracting rich people who go on tours, and some of the attractions are very expensive – like the blue lagoon – but actually most of the people that visit Iceland do so on a budget, and the costs are about the same as anywhere else in Western europe. Having said that, it is important to recognise that the country is not cheap, even with the economic crisis, everything still has to be imported and (as this is a nordic country) taxed heavily. In summary the costs are on par with elsewhere in Western Europe.
