Why It's a Deal According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fare between New York City and Reykjavík in mid-March was $1,188 with taxes (Icelandair). Add about $222 per person, including hotel taxes, for two nights at the Icelandair Hotel Loftleidir and you'd be paying a total of $1,410 for just airfare and accommodations, not including breakfast. For $826 less, this Icelandair Build Your Own: Budget package covers airfare, two nights' hotel, breakfast, a horseback tour, fuel surcharges, and all taxes and fees.
More Optional activities include tours of Reykjavík ($46 per person), the Blue Lagoon ($59 per person), and the Golden Circle ($92 per person). Additional nights at the Icelandair Hotel Loftleidir are $59 per person per night for a double room; add $16 for a single. Upgrade to two nights at the Hilton Reykjavík Nordica for an additional $40 per person.
