The magical island of Iceland is a country filled with beauty. With a distinctive natural landscape, it’s easy to fall in love with the nation and it has become a popular tourist destination for people across the globe. It gained independence from Denmark in 1944 and since then has had a friendly relationship with the UK, albeit with a few disputes regarding fishing. Fishing is the main economy of this small area and the tiny population means that overall GDP is low but very high per capita compared to the rest of the world. The volatile economy was hit hard by the economic crisis but is stabilising now and this brings higher demand for cheap parcel delivery to Iceland. Just three hours from London, it gets a high amount of British visitors for trade, expats and tourism so be sure to compare courier services to Iceland before sending anything.
The population is just 329,100 and almost 120,000 of those people live in the modern capital of Reykjavik. Other destinations popular for cheap postage to Iceland include Kopavogur, Hafnarfjordur, Akureyri and Garöabaer. Having difficult terrain as well as a sparse population, there is no railway in the country but car and air transportation links are very well connected – especially in the Capital Region – to make sure the country can thrive. There are also a number of major harbours used for trade. To send a parcel to Iceland you need to know the three-digit postcode of the destination, there are 149 in total, and Reykjavik starts with 101.
