WOW Air’s cheap fares to Iceland and Europe were still available earlier this month—and happily, it turns out that the airline is still offering some cheap summer fares to Iceland and beyond.

Here’s what I was able to find:

Boston (BOS) to Reykjavik (KEF) for $99 one-way:

Head from Boston-Reykjavik for $99.
Head from Boston-Reykjavik for $99 one-way.

Boston (BOS) to Reykjavik (KEF) for $263 round-trip:

Round-trip from Boston-Reykjavik for $263.
Round-trip from Boston-Reykjavik for $263.

If you’re headed to Iceland, know that KEF is located south of Reykjavik, in the southwest corner of Iceland. Aside from rental cars (most major international car rental brands have offices at KEF, as well as in downtown Reykjavik), there are two ways to get from the airport to the city center: an expensive taxi ride (about $100 US) or a comfortable bus, either of which takes about 45 minutes.

However, one caveat about these fares to Iceland on WOW Air—everything is extra. If you want to check a bag, choose an advanced seat assignment, or purchase a meal, those will all incur additional charges (possibly more than $100). In comparison, carriers such as Delta and IcelandAir provide these same benefits on a complimentary basis.

I spent an awesome five days in Iceland last year, and I hope you’ll be able to visit the country, as well. For suggestions of what to do and where to stay while you’re there, be sure to check out our $99-Fare Guide to Iceland!

Reminder: You can bank extra credit card points by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases, like 3x on airfare with the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or 2x on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.
