Iceland is, according to recent findings, the world’s happiest nation. Whether that’s due to the free education, the extraordinary life expectancy, or the breathtaking volcanic vistas, Iceland is fast becoming on of the world’s hotspots for expats, meaning that shipping to Iceland’s scenic shores is a service in ever-increasing demand. Iceland does a lot of shipping with Norway, but unlike sending to the continent, though, couriers going to Iceland need to be ready to handle a longer sea or air voyage to get there.
Luckily, Parcel2Go work with industry-leading courier services to ensure that your parcel delivery to Iceland goes as smoothly as possible. Our network of couriers includes UPS, Parcelforce and dozens of others, and we get our customers the lowest prices on the market. So whether you’re sending to the capital city of Reykjavík or a secluded hamlet in the northeast region, send it with Parcel2Go.Get a Quote
What else do you need to know...
Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Iceland?
Although Iceland is not a member of the European Union, it does belong to the European Economic Area, which grants a freedom of trade between member nations. That means you won’t need to declare goods when posting to Iceland in the same way you might need to when sending to countries like the US and China. One less thing to worry about.
How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Iceland?
Postage to Iceland can cost as little as £30.70 when you book through Parcel2Go. That’s because we negotiate with our couriers to get prices that domestic users couldn’t, meaning you get the service you deserve at a fraction of the price. Plus, there’s loads of options on all deliveries — from collection and drop-off alternatives to signature tracking and express delivery — meaning you can send cheap parcels in the way that suits you best.
How should I address my parcel for delivery to Iceland?
Iceland has a three-digit postcode and a bunch of localities and strange letters in its addresses, but addressing a parcel there doesn’t have to be stressful. Just refer to this useful guide issued by the Universal Postal Union.
