Iceland is hot right now, and I’m not talking about their volcanoes. First of all, they just did a miraculous job in Euro2016, gaining the respect of the soccer world. How can a nation of 323,000 rollover opponents like England? But the real reason Iceland is so popular right now is the low fares from the new budget airline WOW air. WOW has been offering fares as low as $99 from the US from the east and west coasts. In fact, one of our writers recently did a trip with them (here’s her experience). Even since before WOW air, Icelandair has been offering affordable fares to Europe and free stopovers in their home country for decades.
If you’ve never been to Iceland, I highly recommend it, as it’s one of the most beautiful countries in the world and it’s only a five-hour flight from New York and a 7.5-hour flight from the west coast! It takes less time to fly to Iceland from New York then it does to Los Angeles! If you do go, you’ll want a great guidebook to show you the ins and outs, so below are some of your choices from Amazon (also listed here):
- “Moon Iceland“
- “Lonely Planet Iceland“
- “Frommer’s EasyGuide to Iceland“
- “Top 10 Iceland” (Eyewitness)
- “Iceland” (National Geographic Adventure Map)
- “The Rough Guide to Iceland“
