Everyone knows the best time of year to travel is whenever flights are cheap. That makes now a pretty good time to grab tickets to Iceland. There are loads of inexpensive tickets from August to December from quite a few U.S. cities. In fact, two separate airlines are running attractive deals on flights to Reykjavik, which is great news if you need to get some hákarl in your gullet.
The best deals are coming from Icelandair, which is not a budget airline. That means you aren't paying for extras like baggage, but you are going to have to dig a little to come up with the best prices.
You can get to Reykjavik from Washington D.C. or Newark for just $287, New York City for $288, Boston for $303, Chicago for $339, Minneapolis for $353, Denver for $379, Portland for $394, and Philadelphia for $434.
