Find out if you need adapters or converters for your electrical devices.
Iceland uses Northern European electrical standards (50 Hz/220 volts) so converters may be required for small electrical appliances brought from home.
We do not recommend bringing a hair dryer from North America; many hotels have hair dryers in rooms, and some swimming pools have hair dryers for use in changing rooms.
Some appliances, like chargers for laptops, digital cameras or mobile phones, may already be compatible with multiple voltages and may just need a travel adapter. Iceland uses the standard Europlug socket with two round prongs so you can use adapter types “C” or “F” (often labelled as a Northern Europe adapter).
Make sure to check the voltage labels on your appliances or chargers to see if you need to bring an adapter or converter+adapter.
Converters and adapters are available in Iceland at the duty-free store in Keflavík Airport as well as some major hotels, electronic stores, souvenir shops and bookstores.
