Book flights to Iceland

Iceland’s untamed wilderness is unlike almost anywhere else on earth. Just outside the Arctic Circle, nestled between Norway and Greenland, the island experiences short days, long nights and deep snow for half of the year. The other six months are a celebration of light – a never-ending summer’s day, where the whole country bathes in the glow of the midnight sun.

You can choose which season you want to experience when you fly to Iceland with British Airways. It’s best to visit in winter if you want to see the Northern Lights or sink into the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa powered by Iceland’s volcanic activity and natural hot springs. In summer the snow melts, allowing visitors to hike through the Highlands and see whales leaping from the water. Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, is fun to explore during either season, but the warmer weather brings festivals, museums visits and dinner plans without the winter storms. For a trip like no other, book your holiday to Iceland today.
