Nominate a Friend to Win an Icelandair Stopover Experience of a Lifetime

Enjoy the best of Iceland with these incredible travel deals.

For travellers heading to Europe, an Icelandair stopover is the perfect way to experience the best of what Iceland has to offer en route to your final destination. For no additional airfare charge, passengers can spend up to seven nights in Iceland before continuing to their next destination. Stopover travellers can explore the Geysir geothermal area, the stunning Gullfoss waterfall or relax in Blue Lagoon’s calming waters, among plenty of other things!

Americans can benefit from the excitement that an Icelandic stopover provides: According to research, 73% of Americans lack spontaneity, 86% crave more excitement in their lives, and 72% worry that they aren’t seeing enough of the world. To remedy these issues, Icelandair is offering the opportunity to nominate a friend to win an Icelandic stopover! Click here for more details about how you can nominate someone today!

To see just how incredible an Icelandic stopover can be, check out this heartwarming video of Kat, a Seattle photographer and the winner of Icelandair’s surprise stopover campaign. Kat was travelling on her way to London, when she was greeted at Keflavik International Airport by a crowd of Icelanders eager to show her the best of what Iceland had to offer. In her 48-hour stay, Kat participated in authentic Icelandic cooking practices, relaxed in a secret geothermal lagoon and took in the beauty at some of Iceland’s most renowned natural wonders. Kat says that the once-in-a-lifetime experience has not only “changed” her, but also provided the chance to reflect on what’s important, “which is being open and enjoying opportunities as they’re presented to you.”
