Discover the Beauty of Iceland on a WOW air Stopover

Enjoy two holidays in one with no additional airfare to pay on up to a seven night stopover

WOW air, the ultra-low-cost transatlantic airline from Iceland, is now offering passengers the opportunity for a WOW Stopover in Iceland for up to a week at no additional airfare.

Having recently announced flights from London Gatwick and Bristol to the Californian destinations of Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO), WOW air’s stopover option gives travellers the chance to break up long-haul journeys across the Atlantic. The stopover option is available to book on routes between Europe and the USA via Iceland in either direction. Other North American destinations in 2016 include Boston, Baltimore-Washington, Montreal and Toronto.

Svana Fridriksdottir, Director of Communications at WOW air, said: “Our low-cost transatlantic fares have been a great success with travellers looking to spread their wings and head to North America. Until now our short stop in Keflavik has been a teaser of what Iceland has to offer, but we are looking forward to giving travellers the opportunity to experience Iceland – quite the contrast from our North American and European destinations.”

Ensuring a seamless booking process, travellers can arrange activities and tours through The site offers excursions to popular sites such as The Blue Lagoon and The Golden Circle, as well as explorative tours seeking out the iconic Northern Lights. More adventurous travellers may wish to opt for a journey across Reykjavik’s breath-taking cityscape on a ‘Heli Happy Hour’ tour, or an adrenaline rush on a snowmobiling tour around Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier.
