We have got used to drinking bottled water wherever we go. In some places, we have even paid for one bottle up to 5 dollars, and we think this is so normal that we don’t even care. But this is something you shouldn’t worry about in Iceland. Here you can feel free to drink tap water. Yes! Tap water is fresh, safe, and delicious. It will never taste like chloride as you may think it does like in other countries, and sometimes when it is cold, it tastes better than the bottled ones from the supermarkets.
Before, Iceland didn’t sell bottled water. With the rise of tourism, brands and shops have taken advantage of the situation and start selling bottles of water. Just for you to know, a lot of them use the same water directly from the faucet to the container. So, don’t bother buying it. And if you are in a restaurant, remember you don’t have to pay for it because we never charge for water. Ever!
