How much are flights to Iceland?
The journey to Iceland may be long, but it's definitely worth it. The difference in flight costs comes down to the airlines that you fly with and the length of your stopovers. It's worth weighing up the option of a longer stopover for a cheaper flight fare. From Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $2,000 for return flights to Iceland.
When is the cheapest time to fly to Iceland?
May is the cheapest time to fly to Iceland. Although you're likely to miss the Northern Lights if you travel between May and August, you'll be met with decent weather to sightsee and avoid the crowds before the peak summer travel period.
How far in advance should I book my flights to Iceland?
We searched for upcoming departures and flights well in advance to see how much the price of flights fluctuates. Booking 20-24 weeks in advance gives you the greatest chance of securing a good deal.
