      3 nights in Iceland for just £99 (total £199) including flights, breakfast and hotel @ Ebookers

      Posted 22nd Jul

      This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

      This deal is based on 2 people flying out of Luton on Sunday 17th November, returning Wednesday 20th November, staying for 3 nights in the well reviewed Oddsson Hotel.

      Luton has significantly cheaper flights than the rest of the UK airports.

      3 nights should give you enough time to see some beautiful sites and hopefully catch the northern lights in this beautiful country. Don’t forget it’s £££ when you get there so be prepared for this, especially for the excursions you’ll want to enjoy.

      The apartment is located around a 10 minute bus ride into the centre of Reykjavik. It has a free breakfast, private bathroom, free parking for if you want to hire a car and is newly renovated. It has excellent reviews of 4/5 on average on TripAdvisor.

      There is plenty of other accommodation to choose from, you can save a bit of money if you don’t mind sharing a bathroom as the majority of Reykjavik’s accommodation is shared bathroom.

      As the flights are with WizzAir it doesn’t include any luggage, not even a cabin bag sized hand luggage. If you add priority boarding it is a whopping £36 each return and this will mean you can carry a 10kg cabin sized bag and a backpack. It maybe worth trying to pack everything into a rucksack as it’s only a 3 day trip or sharing a cabin bag if you want to keep the price down!

      Iceland was one of my favourite short holidays. Fantastic excursions, snow mobiles in the middle of a glacier was amazing. Hot springs, geysers, wonderful scenery. Definitely recommend.

      November is actually an awful month for Northern lights in Iceland. Sure, it's got many hours of complete darkness but the weather is generally awful meaning that the dark skies are cloud ridden, especially in the Reykjavik and Golden Circle areas which most tours will cover.

      Realistically if you want to guarantee seeing the lights in November you really need to hire a car and go searching yourself but the roads can be pretty crap by then to.

      would going at the end of October be any better for northern lights?? thinking to book something like this for Half term as my son would love to go.

      Would it work out similar price per person for family of 4?
      Think I'm one of the few miserable people who really didn't enjoy.

      We did it cheaper via Airbnb though, and paid about £120 for flights. You need to rent a car tbh, it's far easier as everything is miles away...

      Only the case if you are comparing both against something that is currently stronger. The pound has grown stronger compared with the Krona which is grown weaker compared with the pound. They are both weaker against the US dollar, the pound less so. All relative

      You don't want to scrimp on luggage as you'll need to pack many layers. Its not so much the cold in Iceland, but the biting wind.

      Its a good price, but Iceland is not a cheap trip

      Try reading my quote. I didn't say it was making it cheaper to visit Iceland, more that the price of visiting (the rest of) Europe and the USA has risen to a comparable level anyway, once you figure in the weak pound. Though, as pointed out, the Krona has weakened significantly.

      "As the flights are with WizzAir it doesn’t include any luggage, not even a cabin bag sized hand luggage."
      Wrong. though very small, yes, Wizz flights do include a basic luggage allowance and it's higher than Ryanair's basic allowance. I'm in no way saying that a 40 x 30 x 20 cm bag is a great allowance or that it's enough for most people, but to say that no luggage allowance is included is simply wrong. I have made it work before and been able to get my camera gear - including a tripod - and 3 changes of clothes into a bag that fits their allowance. Granted, it's not sufficient for everyone. However, if one packs carefully and/or isn't taking a dedicated camera, it may well be enough.

      You also fail to mention that those who have an active Wizz Discount Club membership - some people do frequently fly with Wizz - would pay £22.49 each return, as opposed to £38.98 return. If booked together, both parties would pay that. I wouldn't ever assume someone does have it, nor would I suggest paying that extra £30 if a person is unlikely to fly regularly with Wizz. I do however feel it's incumbent upon those presenting deals to include things that could reasonable save money, though, given that people here wish to save money.

      Finally, let's look at why this "deal" isn't a deal, shall we? The accommodation in these package deal is almost always more expensive than it needs to be, as that's how a third party/middle man makes their profit. Basic accommodation for two can be had for £97, per a Booking search. For singletons - or those who don't feel the need to stay in the same room - there is accommodation available for £33 per person via Booking. Take out priority boarding and/or use the discount club (perhaps wear your base layer on the flight, pack only thermal socks and such to save space) and that £99 per person seems a little high. Additionally, booking via a third party company - AKA not doing it yourself - often means you have to add extras to your flight through them. That means the potential for higher costs and relying on them to make sure there's no issue. If there's some IT failure or a bad call centre and something goes wrong, you're screwed. Book directly and that's less likely.

      Good, you get more for your pound. However you try to dress it up.
      Worth bearing in mind the airport transfers (if not renting a car) are not exactly cheap and if you are planning to visit the Blue Lagoon you might be better getting a transfer that includes a visit to it as it's a lot more expensive to buy an airport transfer and a trip separately. It's a nice way to start a trip to Iceland. We didn't and I'm pretty sure it added near enough an extra £50 each to a visit to the Blue Lagoon.

      Breakfast included is a good deal as food is very expensive, but not terrifyingly so if you shop at their lowest price supermarket (it's roughly equivalent to London small supermarket prices).

      It is very walkable from the hotel location to the centre of Reykjavík.

      I loved Iceland, and would love to go back - but feel I've exhausted the easy inexpensive stuff you can do without independent transport. Also it feels like it could be getting close to being overwhelmed by tourists. Not quite at Amsterdam levels, but...

      Don’t forget to pack an extra suitcase full of pot noodles. Iceland is not a place for HUKD people...the price of stuff over there will make you cry.
      I went in April this year for 4 nights. I recommend the tours but they do last 8-10 hours and be prepared for some hiking in wind and rain. It's about £20-25 for even basic meals in restaurants, think paying £25 for a Nandos meal and you'll be about right. Drinks will be £10 each or more unless it's happy hour in which case they are half price. The city is modest and you can walk most of the interesting parts in a day.

      People are generally friendly but there is a growing resentment towards some of the tourists who rent a vehicle and camp in silly places, leave a mess and put themselves in danger to get a few selfies. An example is: the churches used to always be open to the public but people would camp in them so now they are either manned or closed, a real shame.

      The landscape and nature in general is awe inspiring.

      Do a little shop at a supermarket so you can make some lunches for any tours you do, it will save you money and often give you better choice. Many of the locations you visit have either one shop/cafe with very limited options (school style small cheesburger, £9, chips £7 etc) and nothing else for miles, so if you don't like their selection or don't fancy spending £30 for two snack meals; you're out of luck.

      I wouldn't go again but it's definitely worth it for a one time exploration holiday. Also, in April it was not too cold 0-8 degrees Celsius, it will be very cold nearing November. Get a decent coat, set of thermals and waterproof hiking boots. You might feel silly when you leave the hotel but you will need the gear when out in the country and exposed to the elements.

      Went to the capital a couple of years ago. Noticed a lot of people were filling their pockets with all sorts of food at the breakfast buffet, so my friend and I didn’t feel too bad helping ourselves to an extra Apple each. Went on a long walk around the city and decided to go to a small cafe for lunch. Bowl of veg. soup ( no bread roll) was £25 !!.

      You don't need to go to Northern Europe to see the Northern Lights, you can see them here in the UK on certain dark nights. Unfortunately the Sun is close to Solar minimum atm meaning not much Sunspot activity and therefore not as much flares which cause the Aurorae. You can download apps that will tell you of your best chance of seeing them.
      I've caught them a couple of times and once spectacularly in NI but you really need a dark site and an active Sun.

      The Northern Lights are never guaranteed in Iceland. I spent 5 days there during the Winter and never saw so much as a glimpse of them! Plenty of other stuff to do though but it would require daylight as most are outdoors!
      that’s some deal. It will resemble a scene from the day after tommorow in November though.

      I went Monday to Friday in a February Half term and never saw the Northern lights. Judging by the Aurora forecast , you have a much better chance of seeing them in Norway. Iceland is an island in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean battered by many storms making it hard to see the Northern Lights.

      However, Iceland is a spectacular country to visit for much more of its natural features. Be very careful if hiring a car and driving. Weather conditions can be difficult especially during winter and we saw quite a few 4x4s hired by tourists off roaded. Our bus driver commented on how tourists often don’t appreciate the weather conditions on small roads. When we went there, there was widespread black ice, winds speeds so high you could barely stand, roads blown away due to combination of freeze thaw & high winds on eastern side of Iceland where you can visit the spectacular black sand beach. It’s an amazing country but not without a higher level of risk.

      Puts the 11% depreciation (discussed above) in context - the £25 soup would now be £22.25.
