Mini guide: Cheap flights to Iceland, tourism and travel info

Flights to Iceland: need to know

Cheap airline tickets to Iceland

In the past few years Iceland has become a real tourist magnet for visitors from all around the world. Those heading to discover the incredible diversity of the unique Icelandic landscapes will find a number of airlines offering regular flights between North America and Keflavík's Leifur Eiríksson Airport (KEF), situated only 30 miles out of Reykjavik. You can choose between cheap non-stop flights onboard Icelandair, bmibaby and WOWair and attractive airfares with layovers onboard jetBlue, Finnair, SAS or Norwegian.

When to book the cheapest flights to Iceland

Iceland is a year-round destination. Nevertheless visitor numbers as well as flight ticket prices tend to be highest in the warm summer months. For the best airfares consider booking tickets for flights during the low season, three to six months in advance.

  • Peak season: Between June and August.
  • Low season: May and September, as well as the winter months for the Northern Light spotters.

Flight duration

Non-stop flights from New York to Reykjavik take around 5 hours and 45 minutes.

Experience Iceland: sights, tours and activities

Iceland is rich with spectacular landscapes. Discover volcanoes, fjords, glaciers, waterfalls, hot springs, black sands and other attractions that build the ultimate playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Spot the Northern Lights on the Icelandic winter skies or experience the midnight sun of its almost never-ending summer days. Don't forget the boat tours that will take you to the fascinating whale and puffin populations of the island!

Essentials in Iceland

Reykjavik: While it may be tempting to head to the countless natural wonders of Iceland straight after the landing, you shouldn't miss out on the small but vibrant capital. Enjoy the view from the impressive Hallgrimskirkja, the largest church of the country, and head to the National Museum of Iceland to discover more about the history of the island and its charming people.

Golden Circle: On this popular tourist route you can cover some of the main attractions of South Iceland in just one day. Starting from Reykjavik you discover Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir and Strokkur geysers along this 180-mile route. To warm up after your trip, head to Blue Lagoon, the famous geothermal spa with its milky-blue waters in the middle of a lava field.

Ring Road: Iceland is an ideal destination to discover by road. Take your time while driving along the 828 miles of the Ring Road or Route 1, enjoying the views along the way. Make yourself a list so you don't miss the most important stops like the black beach in Vik, the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón and other famous tourist attractions.

Hotels and accommodation in Iceland

Accommodation in Iceland is not the cheapest. Compare hotel prices in advance to get the best rates for your rooms. There are not many big cities in Iceland with a range of hotels and hostels in different price categories. Outside of the cities you can always find alternative accommodations like family-run inns, farms or camping places.
