Reykjavik, Iceland

Iceland's economy collapsed in 2008, and since then it's done an excellent job of rolling out the deals to entice travelers. Not only is the U.S. dollar worth more in this once prohibitively expensive destination, but Iceland's deals are bundling the perks for added value. For example, Icelandair recently announced a November package from $469 per person, which includes round-trip airfare from New York or Boston, two nights at a three-star hotel in Reykjavik and Scandinavian-style breakfast for two. Other Icelandair deals include spa getaways, nature adventures and Northern Lights packages.

Another tip: The Visit Reykjavik Welcome Card offers discounts to major attractions, thermal pools, restaurants and shops, starting from about $11.

And, best of all, Iceland is closer than you think! It's only about a five-hour flight from the East Coast, and Icelandair serves airports in Boston, New York's JFK airport, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Orlando's Sanford airport and Seattle.

Our Hotel-Fosshotel Baron

A comfortable and centrally located hotel, with a magnificient view out over the ocean. Just a few metres from Reykjavik’s main shopping street Laugavegur and next to the seashore, a short walk from Reykjavik’s harbour.

In December 2007 Fosshotel Baron renovated 20 economy rooms and changed them into Historical rooms. According to our first customer feedback, the historical rooms at Fosshotel Baron are the chain's most romantic hotel rooms with real character. Here comes a little history about the Baron´s historical rooms. The French baron named C.Gouldrée-Boilleau moved to Reykjavik in the year 1898 and founded the first dairy farm in Iceland that had the main purpose to sell milk. He became a pioneer in that field. His farm was called The Baron-dairy farm and both Barónsstígur, the street, and Fosshótel Baron are named after the French baron. This is a preserved building and the furniture and decorations reflect that period.
