    As an Icelander I can say this is all very correct! It s very expensive to be in Iceland and those tips are incredibly worthy. It s true with the water bottles, PLEASE do not buy water in Iceland it s ridiculous to do because they fill the bottles in the same place as the tab water comes from. Some people might not like the taste because it s so fresh so what you do is put it in a bottle and leave it in the fridge over night. Camping is a great way to safe money but be careful to do it on places that is allowed!! We care deeply for our nature and we don t like any travellers (local or not) to tear up our nature. Stay with a local and very likely they will be very happy about taking you guys on tours that would otherwise cost you a fortune! (like the golden circle or northern lights.. it s sad how much they charge travellers for that)
