Iceland is a fascinating island country. Located between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean, it’s been exposed to their harsh winds and waves for millennia – not surprisingly, it’s the most sparsely populated country in all of Europe.
At the same time, wind and weather have created a country that’s fascinating at worst, and breathtakingly beautiful at best. A rough, volcano landscape reminds hikers of the sheer power of nature. The world-famous hot-springs, at the same time, invite those same travelers to relax and feel at home within that same nature. Frequent displays of Northern Lights across the sky make you feel small, while the island’s capital Reykjavik and its 120,000 inhabitants makes for one of the most personal and comforting capitals in all of Europe.
In short, Iceland is full of paradoxes, and that’s exactly what makes this country so fascinating. Adventurers and homebodies alike will find it to be the destination of a lifetime, a bucket-list item you hadn’t even considered.
Of course, traveling to Iceland would not be advisable without knowing the details of the country you’re visiting. Part of that is preparing yourself for what exactly you should expect for your electric devices. Whether you need to charge your smart phone or dry your hair, you should know what exactly awaits you. So it’s great to know that Iceland uses the same outlets and voltage (220V) as most of Europe.
If you’ve traveled to Europe before, you probably already own an adapter and voltage converters. But if not, you should remember that Travel Plug adapters for Iceland should also convert your voltage to ensure shorting and ultimately destroying your appliance or device. We offer some great converters and adapters that are well worth a look. Remember we can make sure you’re ideally prepared for your Icelandic adventure!
