Iceland has become an increasingly popular vacation destination over the past few years and the popularity is set to increase further as new routes to the island have been announced.

CSA and Wizz Air have announced more scheduled flights that will fly from Prague to Reykjavik on a weekly basis from this summer. Wizz Air will begin carrying passengers on this route at the end of May, whilst CSA will fly twice a week from June to the end of September. CSA are believed to be testing the popularity of the route and might continue into the winter if the flights prove successful.

Previously a connection flight would be required to get you to Reykjavik with most people flying from Berlin. Direct flights were available back in 2012 with Czech Airlines but this route was discontinued in favor of other destinations.

The flights with CSA are currently listed at 6000czk for a return flight, but this is set to drop closer to the booking date. A one-way flight with Wizz Air will set you back around 1,339czk which looks to be a bargain, although Wizz Air will charge extra for luggage.

Why Iceland?

Iceland is a Nordic island that is famous for its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and lava fields. Tours are available of the most dramatic features, including glaciers, waterfalls and even views of the Northern Lights. Hallgrimskirkja is a cathedral that wouldn’t look out of place in Game of Thrones, Myvatn Nature Baths can clear you of your impurities and Namafjall is an ancient mythical lake. The country is certainly one for those who enjoy hiking and nature.
