The Northern Lights are a magical sight and you'll have the best chance to see them when Icelandic sky goes dark in the winter months.

Take advantage of Icelandair's latest fare sale to its home hub of Reykjavik (KEF) departing from a number U.S and Canadian airports and grab a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis. Better yet, surprise your mom this Mother's Day with one of these discounted fares starting at just $333 roundtrip for fall and winter travel.

Travel Availability

Sale fares on most routes are available from October 1 through March 28, 2020. Departure days will vary by city-to-city pairing as Icelandair doesn't operate all routes on a daily basis.

In most cases, departures are valid on Monday and Tuesday, with returns open on Wednesday through Fridays.

Peak holiday travel is blacked out and a 3-day minimum stay is required on most routes.

Sale Period

Tickets at the listed sale prices must be purchased by Wednesday, May 15, 2019, GMT.
