On May 20, 2015, Icelandair will launch service from their 14th North American gateway in Portland, Oregon. To celebrate this exciting event, Icelandair is offering a special package that starts at just $1,120* per person for a limited time (based on double occupancy).
The Iceland Intro Offer is valid for departures from May 20 through September 30, 2015 and includes nonstop flights on Icelandair from Portland International Airport (PDX); 3-nights hotel accommodation; Gullfoss, Geysir & Thingvellir tours; and visits to Reykjavik and South Iceland.
After your first day exploring the charming Icelandic capital of Reykjavik with its rich history, delicious cuisine, and unique shops, you’ll journey to some of Iceland’s most exciting and historic natural wonders with a visit to the Golden Circle region. You’ll visit Thingvellir National Park, home to the world’s first parliament, the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, and the stunning, powerful Gullfoss waterfall. The last day of the trip is open, allowing for your own adventures. Iceland does not disappoint with so much to see and do, especially during the summer when the sun is visible for nearly 24 hours a day!

To continue the celebration of their newest North American gateway, Icelandair is running a “#PDXtravelganza” campaign! What exactly is it, you ask? From April 10-12, 2015, Icelandair representatives will be stumping through Stumptown and the entire Portland metro area, providing locals the daily chance to win a pair of round-trip tickets to Europe! In addition, t-shirts, gift certificates for travel on Icelandair, Icelandic music CDs and other cool prizes will be given away, from North Portland to Southeast, from Old Town to Hollywood.
How can you participate?
- Icelandair will provide that day’s password on Facebook and Twitter, along with clues to help find the location of each day’s tickets
- Clues will be given at various times of the day until the tickets are found
- The first person to arrive at the secret location and reveal the password to the Icelandair representatives will win tickets for two to one of more than 20 destinations in Europe
