Pricey Iceland can be a Cheapo’s nightmare. It can be very expensive to get to Reykjavik, and then there are the plainly terrorizing rates and prices waiting for visitors on the ground.
This is a huge shame, as Reyjkavik’s natural and modern charms make for a European capital unlike any other. Everytime we visit the city we fall in love with it all over again.
Now Iceland Express, the somewhat low-cost, Reykjavik-based airline, is hawking some cheapish fares. From today, March 22 through Monday, March 26, Iceland Express is offering DKK1360 (€183; $244) round-trip fares from Copenhagen and Billund to Reykjavik; NOK1450 (€178; $238) fares from Oslo to Reykjavik, and SEK1690 (€182; $242) fares from Stockholm and Gothenburg. All fares include taxes and surcharges.
Nordics with some time and money on their hands should take advantage, as these fares put a Reykjavik sojourn within budgetary reach.
While you’re researching fares, check out the Iceland Express blog. It’s humorous and entertaining; we find it downright addictive.
