Viking is one of the most beautiful places on earth in terms of natural beauty—but if you need another reason to go, just watch the video above. After their amazing performance in Euro 2016, the world became mesmerized by their now famous “Viking clap.” Throughout the tournament, it was special to see, but when the team returned home after finally being eliminated and were greeted by more than 30,000 people (10% of Iceland’s population) and did the Viking clap all together one last time, it was magical.

Iceland is hot right not just because of their soccer team but also because of the low fares being offered by 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.
