Laufey Hrönn:There are strict rules about buying alcohol in Iceland and the sale of alcohol is heavily taxed so prices are high. Supermarkets are not allowed to sell alcohol of any kind but most restaurants are allowed to sell alcohol. The only stores that are allowed to sell alcohol are government owned alcohol stores called Vínbúðin. People under the age of 20 are not allowed to buy alcohol of any kind in Iceland.I recommend buying alcohol at the Duty Free Store in KEF (Leifsstöð)
