A Great Big Icelandic Package


Chances are you're already dead-set on your next vacation destination: Iceland (where else?). But since you wouldn't want to just plop down in the middle of the world's 18th largest island and ask, "Which way to Hafnarfjörour?", book a sweet package with Icelandair*.

Thrillist - IcelandairIcelandair's been flying since people cowered at the sight of "giant metal birds" (1937). Their packages cover it all, from the Snaefellsjokull volcano-glacier (inspiration for Journey to the Center of the Earth) to B5 (inspiration for every Scandinavian bistro-lounge on the planet). A few prime options:

Lifestyle: The smoothest deal's three nights in Reykjavik, with horseback riding and waterfall/geyser ogling, plus nights at the Blue Lagoon (a geothermal seawater spa) and the Ice Bar, where the walls, the fixtures, and even the glassware are cut from clear glacial ice. Also included: a daily breakfast buffet, which'd be awesome even in Cleveland.

Adventure: Horseback across mountains, forests, lava fields, and deserts. Or take the Viking Challenge, a 6-night blitz of mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, and white water rafting (pillaging not included).

Luxury: From high-end salmon fishing resorts to Reykjavik spa weekends, where you'll do nothing but dine in fine restaurants and receive ludicrous pampering, e.g., getting wrapped in geothermal volcanic mud (little known fact: the Pompeians had perfect skin).

Book now, and get $50 off your Iceland Party Weekend trip by mentioning Thrillist. Enter the Icelandair Sweepstakes, and you could win two roundtrip tickets from Boston to Reykjavik, two nights hotel with r/t transfers, and entrance passes to the Blue Lagoon day spa. Or take 2nd prize, we'll send you a case of Reyka, the delicious Icelandic vodka that'll inspire you to say things like "Hafnarfjörour!", when you're just trying to say, "Hey, what's up?"
