How much does a trip to Iceland cost?

Iceland is a remote and isolated destination that offers all modern comforts in almost every corner that you decide to visit, the upside of the country’s high cost of living and the fact that they have to import most of their supplies and fresh produce. Iceland can be considered pricey, however it depends on the type of experience you are looking for. 

Prices also vary depending on the time of year you decide to travel. Summer, or peak season from May through August is usually more expensive, as the weather allows for certain activities that cannot be enjoyed in the winter. Winter is less pricey as well as less crowded, which some prefer, and offers opportunities for other activities, such as observing the Northern Lights. 

Approximate cost for roundtrip flights at the beginning of the peak season: 
  • Manchester, UK, to Reykjavik, from $390 to $570.
  • Boston, USA, to Reykjavik, from $350 to $1,550.
  • Toronto, CAN, to Reykjavik, from $830 to $1,400.

NOTE: Keep in mind flight prices vary from month to month, depending on when you book your flight.
