Reykjavik - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Small. Overall morale is good. Quality of life very high. Can be hard for outsiders to penetrate insular Icelandic society. - Sep 2021

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 2017

Fairly good sized expat community, all things considered. - Jun 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 2013

It's a small but good group. The various Embassy communities around town do a lot of things together. - Jul 2011
