Living in EuropeAccommodationIceland




The Icelandic housing market differs substantially from the other Nordic countries. Icelandic housing is charecterised by home ownership, although a significant rental sector has emerged in the last years, especially in reaction to increased tourism, which in turn may make it more difficult to find reasonable renting options. Rental Housing in Iceland is generally in short supply and it might prove quite a challenge to find suitable accommodation that fits your budget.

In the capital area keep in mind the distance to and from your workplace when looking for a suitable neighborhood. The location can have an effect on the rental price but the distance could also determine whether you would feel the need to have access to a vehicle or use public transport.
