Best Weekend Breaks to Iceland on a Budget

Best Weekend Breaks to Iceland on a Budget

The country's reputation for beauty is almost exceeded by its notoriety for Scandinavian prices. That said, there are plenty of ways to plan weekend breaks in Iceland on a budget.

  1. Go in the low season

    Prices are the lowest between September and April, and if you're hoping to see the Northern Lights, this is the best time to visit, anyway. Because some tours don't operate during this season and roads can be closed due to ice, you might have to limit your trip in certain ways, but you can still rent a car with four-wheel drive and make the most of the limited visitor crowd. Furthermore, this is a great time to see Reykjavik. The city's streets, heated from below, mean you can walk around easily all year round.

  2. Accommodation

    Stay in a holiday apartment or youth hostel. Hotels in Iceland are pricey at any time of year. Hostels, however, are family-friendly as well as clean, making them an ideal option for most budget travellers.

  3. Avoid the most popular areas

    The Blue Lagoon is world-famous, but there are plenty of other thermal pools in the area, which are free or cheaper to enter. One great option is the Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths.
