A trip to Iceland planned for this summer? Then make sure you stuff your wallet with larger bills than originally planned. Else you won´t see very much.

It might not make a tiny bit of a difference for you wanting to visit Iceland if you pay a little extra at every beautiful spot you want to visit. After all, in many places in the world you have to pay for access to the most amazing places. Difference is, the rich one percent here have been able to buy the most stunning spots in the country. Your money will make the rich even richer instead of going into common coffers of the state as is the case in most normal countries. Iceland would be a fine addition to the red states of the US.

Which is not just sad but downright horrible. This snowball of charging extra for every nice spot in Iceland is just starting its roll and Iceland is far away from being cheap beforehand.

The spots you will have to pay to see this summer include Kerid crater, Dettifoss waterfall, Leirhnjukar mud springs and Geysir hot spring area. To this list you can add the famous Blue lagoon which is majority owned by individuals. The list might get longer soon as more and more people see the opportunity to make easy money.

Oh, and the price for admittance? Somewhere between 6 to 8€ / 8 to 10$ for every sight. It adds up doesn´t it.
