Why It’s A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found roundtrip airfare between New York and Reykjavík for $543 in early December (Iceland Express). Add that to about $224 per person for a three-night stay at the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavík Natura, taxes included, and you’d pay at least $767 for airfare and hotel alone if you booked independently. For $20 more, you get two tours and airport transfers with this deal.
More You can book additional nights at the Reykjavík Natura from $65 per person (or $95 for solo travelers). Optional excursions include a Golden Circle tour of historic Viking site Thingvellir and Geysir Hot Springs (from $86 per person), and a Jeep tour of Eyjafjallajökull, an ice-capped volcano (from $374 per person).
