Typically I choose my travel destinations not only based on the most desirable destination, but also the most desirable journey. All of a sudden I have the urge to travel to Reykjavik, though. Flights on Icelandair are $399 all-in, it’s only a short flight, and Icelandair’s coach product actually appears to be half decent, with audio and video on demand (although the livery is totally nasty).
Now, this probably isn’t the ideal time to visit Iceland, although I figure that’s never the case as a Floridian. But still, I’m tempted to go. One of my most memorable trips was to Queenstown, New Zealand in winter, where it got dark before 4PM and the sun only rose at 9AM. I realize it’s the opposite in Iceland in summer, which also seems nice, but I’m still tempted to go in winter for a few days.
Besides, I love the way they describe an “Iceland Budget Getaway:”
Take advantage of the great exchange rate and hop on up to the top of the world this fall, the ideal time to experience all Iceland has to offer!! Enjoy shopping for quality Icelandic products, early Christmas shopping, delicious gourmet Icelandic cuisine (including Icelandic game, popular during November), invigorating outdoor adventure, highland wilderness beauty, soothing spas and more.
Something about that just makes me chuckle.
Anyway, who has been? Is it time to plan an Iceland Do?
