In fact, as reported by a number of local media in Iceland, one of which is The Reykjavik Grapevine magazine, the information is not true, aka a hoax. The Icelandic government has never made a program to provide subsidies to non-Icelandic men who marry local women there, currently the number of men in Iceland is greater than the number of women.

iceland language

Iceland’s official language is Icelandic, the Nordic language. Icelandic is an ancient language that has changed little over time. It also doesn’t use loan words. Instead, new words are created from related words that already exist. As an example; the word for ‘computer’ comes from the words ‘prophet’ and ‘number’.

Icelandic may only be useful in Iceland, but it opens the door to a rich history and culture. If Icelandic is proving difficult for you, don’t worry. Most Icelanders are fluent in English and have no trouble using their second language to talk to you.

iceland weather

Icelandic winters can be harsh. Make sure you have a strong, warm coat and a good pair of snow boots. Outside of Reykjavik, the snow isn’t always clear, so make sure you plan your route ahead of time.

During summer, buses and buses connect the island. But once the tourists leave, so does a lot of transportation. Buses run in winter, but it’s best to drive if you’re heading somewhere.

Iceland also boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Walking at night in Reykjavik carries much less risk than in many other capital cities. As for terrorism, the risk is very low in Iceland. It has no recent attack history or plot.

Iceland boasts some of the most unique landscapes in the world. Whether it’s dramatic black rock in summer or snow-covered in winter, this is a great place to study abroad.
