Fare of the Month – Paris & Iceland with Icelandair
The Land of Fire and Ice meets the City of Lights
Smouldering Reykjavik and sophisticated Paris – could this be the perfect vacation to Europe?
It’s definitely the ideal time to book a trip to these two sought-after destinations. We are thrilled to let you in on July’s hottest offer, representing both value and luxury. Oh, and more significantly, combining two of the world’s must-see cities into a single airfare! There will be plenty of money left over to enjoy Reykjavik excursions and the many things to do in Paris.
Among the advantages of enlisting the free expertise of a Flight Centre travel consultant, is getting tailor-made airfares that you cannot simply book online. Let us book your Icelandair flights to Paris, with a stay in remarkable Reykjavik on the way.
If Iceland isn’t on your radar, it should be. This gem is one of our fastest-growing vacation destinations, while Paris is one of the world’s most beloved. Toronto to Reykjavik and Toronto to Paris flights are quickly selling out; as is the Montreal to Paris route. These are also big-sellers from our other Canadian gateways, too. Summer is the perfect time to travel Iceland and France; don’t miss your chance!
Live the High Life on Icelandair
Icelandair may seem like the new kid on the block to us North Americans, but it’s been flying high in Europe for 60 years. It operates scheduled flights from its hub at Iceland’s largest airport, Keflavik International Airport, to 35 destinations on both sides of the Atlantic. The official carrier of Iceland, it offers flights from Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax. Don’t live near one of those gateways? Not a problem. One of our Airfare Experts can find you cheap flights and seamless connections.
Reykjavik Airport (KEF)
Passengers on Icelandair flying Saga Class or Economy Comfort are able to enjoy the Saga Lounge at Keflavík International Airport in Iceland.
Step inside Keflavík International Airport’s sophisticated Saga Lounge and experience a unique Icelandic atmosphere. Reflecting Iceland’s soothing nature and crisp design, the bright and open space is relaxing and inviting. Elements include an Icelandic basalt fireplace and stacked local rocks. Admire Iceland’s stunning waterfalls, landscapes and people in photographs adorning the walls. Artwork also depicts Icelandair’s long history. Imbibe on a wide variety of beverages and taste Icelandic delicacies while you catch up on news, emails or kick back and close your eyes.
Paris Airport (CDG)
After you’ve enjoyed the many things to do in Reykjavik, fly into Charles de Gaulle airport to take in the many .
The Eiffel Tower & Towering Icebergs
Things to do in Paris
It may sound like a travel cliché, but the things to see and do in Paris are endless. Here are the top Paris attractions, based on tourism numbers:
- Louvre Museum
- Eiffel Tower
- Palace of Versailles
- Centre Pompidou
- Musee d’Orsay
- Arc de Triomphe
We highly recommend getting a Paris museum pass, which your travel agent can order for you. Since the name of this airfare mentions sidewalk cafes, other Paris points of interest of course is simply emulating the Parisian way of life — croissants and coffee, picnics and wine, and the general <bonne vie> for which they are famous. Effortlessly fashionable, hopelessly romantic and timelessly beautiful, stroll the winding cobblestone streets and know what it is truly like to live in the moment. Two and a quarter million (the Paris population) can’t be wrong!
- Reykjavik downtown shopping and eating in – Iceland’s fashion ‘fjord-ward’ capital
- Whale watching from May to September
- Hike or horseback ride through Landmannalaugar, with its otherworldy landscapes of multi-coloured rhyolite mountains, lava fields and the Hekla volcano
- Marvel at the geysers; powerful hot fountains created by volcanic activity beneath the Earth’s surface are nothing short of exciting
- Go for a dip in a geothermal pool at the Blue Lagoon. Wait till you see it and you can thank us after. Breathaking beyond belief.
What we’ve said here is only the tip of the iceberg (or fjord, or glacier!) about this mind-blowing and memorable destination. The things to do in Reykjavik alone will keep you busy for the duration of your Iceland vacation, but be sure to venture out of the city and into the wilderness. In a way, it may not feel like a huge transition as the Reykjavik population is over 120,000, sparse compared to other European capital cities.
Paris is photogenic and Iceland is too, in a completely different way. If you’re trying to whittle down which of Europe’s may gems to visit, this Sidewalk Cafes to Stunning Panoramas airfare is for you.
Let us get creative with your itinerary to make it a customized vacation all your own. Don’t miss this rugged and romantic airfare opportunity, with Icelandair.
