Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, known for its outstanding natural beauty, has reminders of its Viking past at every turn. But in a city of just 215,000 people, Reykjavik has so much more to offer than just a glimpse into history.
Why exhibit there?
The business environment in Iceland is fast moving, focused and company friendly. Iceland’s economy relies heavily on exports of marine products, aluminium, software, ferro-silicon alloys, woollen goods and fishing industry-related products.
Once you land at Keflavik Airport, getting to Reykjavik is straightforward. You can take the public bus (Strætó) which will take 45 mins, or you can take a taxi or rent a car.
Restrictions on what you can bring into the country
No unusual restrictions on what you can bring into Iceland, although they do ask for all riding and angling gear to be disinfected before entry.
They do have restrictions on what you can take out: Icelandic law forbids the export of birds, bird eggs, bird nests, eggshells, many rare minerals, all stalactites and stalagmites in caves, and 31 protected plant species.
