What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

Small like the country. Morale is good. Reykjavik is safe, clean and has plenty to do. At the US embassy, it is so small that there is not a strong community. You have to find friends outside of work. - Nov 27, 2017
Fairly good sized expat community, all things considered. - Jun 23, 2015
Pretty big - there's a Facebook group of Americans living in Iceland and the International School as a decent smattering of various nationalities. - Feb 13, 2013
It's a small but good group. The various Embassy communities around town do a lot of things together. - Jul 29, 2011
