In the land of ice, you definitely won’t go numb to the raw and untouched beauty of the country. The place just screams bucket list, with cascading waterfalls, dramatic rocky scenery, glacial lakes, black sand beaches, geysers (including the famous Golden Circle – not the tinned fruit), the even more famous Blue Lagoon, oh and the NORTHERN LIGHTS.
This country is basically an explorer’s Disney on Ice. To ensure that you don’t miss out on these breathtaking sites, you’ll need to exchange your New Zealand dollars to Icelandic krona, so you can focus on taking in the crisp air of adventure.
One thing you should know about Iceland, the country is expensive. The small economy not only relies heavily on the big sites to rake in the revenue, but the price of food and drink has also been jacked up (sneaky). So we recommend that you err on the side of caution and slightly overestimate the amount of ISK you’ll need, and convert more NZD before departing. This way you’ll be able to enjoy all the sites without going hungry or stressing about converting more currency.
