Fire and Ice…? Where else could that be other than Iceland! Take advantage of the fall fares and take on a very cool adventure to one of the hottest new destinations! It is the country offering the minimum in human activity and the maximum in endless landscapes and natural wonders. But hurry, the direct Toronto-Reykjavik flights operate only until 25 Oct this season. During the rest of the year you can fly there twice a week via Halifax as Icelandair has promised us year-round service from there starting 2009.
When I just checked the fares, I found for example some dates in October that you can fly to from Toronto to Reykjavik for less than $600 CAD including taxes! That is a pretty amazing price, considering that even flights to Washington DC tend to run over $700 CAD these days.
We can also offer packages that include a flight, 2 nights at a hotel in Reykjavik with Scandinavian breakfast, transfers from and to the Keflavik airport and airport taxes. These deals start from $845 CAD per person in double occupancy for the two nights. Of course it depends on the flight and hotel availability on the selected dates. You can add extra nights, tours and activities to your package and make it a very unique holiday. I am not listing ALL the things to do over there – but I just have to mention the unforgettable riding trip and the fabulous Blue Lagoon. For more info on Iceland you can click here
