Iceland on a Budget

It can be tough to tour Iceland on a budget -- but overall, the best strategy for finding great deals is to travel during winter. To save on accommodations, look for guest houses and farmstays, which offer low-priced lodging as well as a unique way to experience local culture. (You can find a list of farm accommodations in Iceland at www.farmholidays.is). Icelandair regularly offers affordable vacation packages, which bundle hotel and airfare, for a reasonable price.

Best Time to Go to Iceland

Iceland is truly a year-round destination, with something to offer visitors during every season: from endless days and balmy weather during summer to the northern lights and winter sports in the coldest months. Summer is the most popular tourism season in Iceland -- that's when the crowds descend. But budget travelers and winter-sports enthusiasts should consider an off-season trip to the country, as prices for accommodations in and airfare to Iceland are generally less expensive during the winter.
