Cheap flights to Reykjavik are on every bargain-hunter’s wish list. It’s a unique destination, capital of Iceland, like no other place on earth. In the Land Of The Midnight Sun you will feel as though you’re on another planet. The lunar landscapes should be seen and enjoyed at least once. While the banking crisis of the late Noughties and the volcanic ash of the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano in 2010 tarnished Iceland’s reputation a little, don’t let that put you off. During the summer Iceland experiences more than 20 hours of daylight, something you cannot imagine until you’ve experienced it. Its Blue Lagoon alone is worth making the trip for. Warm thermal waters are full of minerals and, it is said, soothe skin ailments. Spending time at the breathtaking lagoon is a completely relaxing experience. Due to Reykjavik’s location, flanked by the Norwegian Sea, whale-watching should be high on your activities list.
Although Reykjavik is sometimes considered to be an expensive city, it’s worth spending some time browsing its shopping areas. You’ll be surprised at how reasonable the prices are; worth keeping back a little space in your luggage on your flight to Reykjavik. Visit the Kringlan Shopping Centre for everything from traditional souvenirs and the patterned jumper (lopapeysa) to designer stores. Apart from the shops, Hallgrimskirkja Church, Reykjavik City Museum and Videy Island are all essential sites to jot down on your must-see list during your Reykjavik flight. A night out in Reykjavik is particularly special when daylight hours are at their peak. Most Icelanders don’t head out until past midnight and the party doesn’t get started until the early hours. It feels natural because it doesn’t get dark. Literally. Strange, but also very enjoyable. Taking cheap flights to Reykjavik transports you to another world, one which you will never forget.
