Iceland Blog - In Search of the Northern Lights

Just back from a 3 day trip to Iceland and here are is a fact file and highlights.

 

  • WOW fly daily from Dublin with fares from €49.99 each way
  • Icelandair will commence services from Dublin May 2018 and they allow stopovers en-route to USA, which is something to consider for the future
  • Easyjet and Icelandair fly from Belfast
  • Time zone same as Ireland
  • Flight time 2Hrs – 2.30 Hrs
  • Transfer time from airport to Reykjavik 45 minutes
  • Central Reykjavik is now a coach free zone, so you will be dropped off at a bus stop and will have to walk to your accommodation
  • Iceland is expensive so buying duty free alcohol on arrival is worth a thought.  There is a duty free shop at the airport on arrival
  • Currency is Iclandic Kroner but they accept Euro cash, credit and debit cards

 

 

 

BLUE LAGOON

A must visit and visit it when you arrive, it is close to the airport and will save you further transfer costs.  You also must book it in advance and packages start from €100
