"kindness" Iceland Local Custom Tip by Nexus7

Iceland Local Customs: 183 reviews and 248 photos

Remember to be nice to people here. They are as curious about you as your are about them. Don't be arrogant nor ignorant. I've learned you get more of a response if you try to speak a little of their language, they seem to open up to you. I wouldn't worry though, for most people here know a good deal of English.
Also, people here have a tendancy to stare at you just to look at you. Don't take offence, it's simply their way of checking you out. I think it's kind of nice, then you know if the women are interested or not. People here also are not afraid to tell you what they think. I love it. They are genuinely interesting and have class.
