Great Flights

Cancellation Policies

Make sure to ask us about trip insurance. You might not think it’s worth it, sometimes things come up that are inevitable. The small investment could save you a huge headache as well as a saved expense!

About Iceland

Most of the country’s popular tourist attractions are in the south near the capital, Reykjavik. Reykjavik means ‘smoky’, but in the case of Iceland’s pristine capital (which is Europe’s most northerly capital city) the smoke is not smog, but rather steam from the underground springs that warm the city. Reykjavik has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the cleanest, most invigorating cities in Europe, and boasts one of the highest standards of living in the world. The city may be small, but it is full of interesting attractions, from galleries and museums to thermal bathing spots, and the nightlife is second to none.
