I have bought this for a holiday in Greenland to give me some background information.
...not yet been to Greenland, but I know Iceland very well, so the review is based on my knowledge of Iceland (where I have been more than 30 times - mainly for business, but with several holidays over the years).
The information on Iceland seems to have mainly been written pre "krepa" (the Icelandic banking crisis) and since then prices have changed massively - mostly down for foreign tourists.
To correct this aspect, here are a few observations of my own:
- car hire is very expensive (if you are going to Iceland for the first time, the best option from airport to hotel is the Flybus; buy tickets in arrivals; the 'plus' option will take you right to your hotel rather than the bus station)
- hotel are offering some great deals, especially when combined with a flight - Icelandair always seems to have some deals going and I even buy these package holidays for business)
- eating out is a similar price to London, although in Iceland the quality if often much higher if you avoid the American chains and go to real Icelandic restaurants.
By all means buy this guide, however much of the up to date information that you need can easily be found on line.
Overall, a bit dated but OK if you want some of the history.
If anyone wants to start a comment conversation, I'm only too happy to chip in.
(BTW - I have no commercial interest in Icelandic tourism, I work as a security consultant - I just happen to love Iceland and the Icelandic people!)
