Hot off the Travelzoo press, just received an email about a weekend getaway from NYC to Iceland through Iceland Air.

Here is the scoop:

Travel time: June; weekend departures on June 2, 3, 9, 11; weekday departures on June 12, 13, 14, 15

Hotel: two nights at the Icelandair Hotel Loftleidir (additional nights for $79 per person); includes daily buffet breakfast

Curious about this hotel? So were we. Seems it is a bit out-of-the-way so you will have to depend on taxis to get around (or your tour guide) but overall it

seems like a decent hotel, if you don’t mind the distance. There are mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. Check them out here.

 

Option to upgrade to the 4-star Hilton Reykjavik for an additional $56 per person total. This hotel has much better reviews on TripAdvisor (rated #4) and seems to be in a better location, if you don’t mind paying a little more. Read the reviews here.

Sightseeing: Choice of three tours, including visits to Iceland’s famed Blue Lagoon and scenic Reykjanes Peninsula

Total Cost: $599

Note: we selected a departure date of June 17 and the price went up to $754 per person. If your dates are flexible, you will get a better deal.

Bottom Line: This package allows you to have two full days (and an extra half day if you leave in the evening on your departure day) to do some solid sightseeing. If the dates work, we say go for it! Iceland is supposed to be incredible and the price of this whole package is cheaper than flights alone!! Hoping to get there soon. 

Book by: Sunday, April 3 (hurry!!)
