Healthcare in Iceland is among the best in Europe, even the world. A large chunk of the government spending is assigned to healthcare.Icelanders take good care of all tourists that become ill or are injured on their traveling endeavors, but the cost depends on your country of origin and how you are insured. Icelandic doctors are well educated and speak at least English and often one of the Scandinavian languages. Finding a doctor is easy. Healthcare facilities where people can drop in to visit doctors are in the Reykjavik area. In the rural areas a phone call to the nearest hospital or the police can help you find a doctor or getting the appropriate treatment. The emergency phone number in Iceland is 112.
