Iceland in the Fall? A Short-Lived Sale Makes It An Affordable Choice

Iceland's presence on the world stage has been pretty explosive lately, what with its economic collapse several years back, and more recently its pesky volcanoes belching up enough smoke to ground hundreds of flights to Europe. But don't let these negatives stop you from visiting this alluring country of fire and ice, with its lava fields, its hot springs, its hopping night clubs and majestic glaciers.

 Prices will certainly be in your favor if you decide to go, especially if you can get your plans together in the next two days, which will allow you to take advantage of Icelandair's current sale. Its worth rushing for: if you can book on time, you'll get a round-trip ticket to Iceland (including fuel surcharges), a two-nights hotel stay including breakfasts, one guided tour and admission to a geothermal bath and a gallery for as little as $599 this fall. The price holds for folks flying from Toronto, Halifax, Boston, Seattle or Washington, Dc. Dates vary per gateway, click here for all the fine print.

Usually when Icelandair throws a sale, its competitor Iceland Express matches, but that hasn't happened in this case. However, if you're thinking of going to mainland Europe, Iceland Express does have some well-priced flights (via Reyjavik) for the fall, so do check there before booking.


  1. I love this kind of trips filled with beautiful natural scenes.

    About 6 months ago I went to a train called El Chepe, was a trip to remember. Every time you look at the window, amazing natural landscapes. Also great food and service.
