Explore Iceland

Iceland might have got a bad name for itself what with the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull that first occurred in March 2010 and whose ash clouds caused the highest level of disruption to air travel since the Second World War.

But that’s all over now and if you want to get away somewhere a little off the beaten track, get yourself on a plane to Reykjavik and explore a country that was home to the Viking explorers who first reached North America, the spectacular Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the oldest known geyser in the world.

Offered via Groupon you can get return flights with WOW Air to the Icelandic capital for €139 per person between September 1st and December 14th 2015 – availability at these rates is limited so you need to book quickly.

Just keep an eye on that volcano.
