Via Miles to Memories, you can fly from a number of US cities like Denver, Boston, New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland, and others, to Reykjavik, Iceland, for ~$300+ round-trip in coach.
And even better, the price includes a free checked bag!
For example, I found a flight between Boston and Reykjavik leaving August 24, 2017, and returning August 30, 2017, for ~$312.
These sale fares are good for Icelandair flights from August 2017 through December 2017, including holidays like Thanksgiving!
Here are the details. And how to search for deals from your city!

If you do book a ticket with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline you may be eligible for a refund within a short time of booking your ticket. Check out my post on cancellation policies for airlines and online travel agencies for more details!
Because these flights are on Icelandair, you won’t be nickeled and dimed with fees, like with WOW Air. In fact, you’ll get perks like a free checked bag, free Wi-Fi, and a free meal for any children traveling with you!
If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
Note: If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).
Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
