Getting to Iceland from UK


 

getting-to-iceland-from-uk

Travelers coming from the UK have several options for how to get Reykjavik, depending on where in the UK they live. The largest carrier is Icelandair, which offers multiple daily flights between  Glasgow, Manchester, London and Reykjavik for 130-350 euros each way depending on when you go and how far in advance you book. The flight takes about three hours.

You can also fly direct to Reykjavik from Belfast, Edinburgh, and London and on low-cost carrier, IcelandExpress, which only costs about 45-75 euros each way (again depending on when you book). It’ll cost more to fly in summer peak season than it will in the winter, and you’ll find that the earlier you book the more you can save, though keep an eye out for last minute fare sales as well.

You can’t drive across the ocean to the island of Iceland, but you can journey by boat. The three day trip on the Smyril Line from Denmark  to Iceland (via the Faroe Islands) operates all year, except from January to March, with prices starting at 65 euros per person.
