We don’t know about you, but we’ve been dying to visit Iceland and finally it seems more possible than ever now that EasyJet has announced it will launch it’s first flights to this magical, nordic country.
At one point, Iceland was one of the most inaccessible places in Europe. That is all going to change very soon! For the first time, Iceland will be accessible via low cost airlines which will no doubt become very popular, very quickly!
EasyJet will launch flights from London Luton to Reykjavik three times a week beginning March 27, 2012. Tickets have already gone on sale with fares as cheap as £32 one way and £59 for a roundtrip journey.
With this new addition, EasyJet’s network now spans a whopping 30 countries.
EasyJet’s UK director Paul Simmons had this to say about the new route,
“It is hugely exciting to be able to offer easyJet flights to Iceland for the very first time.
“Our new route will not only be attractive for business travellers, but also for those looking for culture-rich city breaks or adventurous travellers looking for unrivalled scenery and activities.”
Where the wild things are
There are few words that can totally describe this incredible country. Craggy is a good one for the landscape. Warm and open-minded are good words to describe the locals. Now is the best time to accept an invitation to the president’s house for traditional pancakes or to join a local for a hike up a mountain. It’s all part of a new tourism campaign Iceland recently launched to inspire the country’s folk to get to know the foreigners visiting their country and share their culture one on one.
This year experts have predicted that the illusive and magical northern lights will be more visible than ever, the perfect excuse to travel to Iceland this winter/spring. The Aurora Borealis is without a doubt one of the most incredible natural phenomena and Iceland is among the best places in the world to see them.
