It’s difficult to take a long vacation for ALLIE to work, so we chose toLunar New Year HolidaysSet off.

The departure time is in the evening in Taiwan, but in London it is early in the morning, just the beginning of the day! The return trip is at 17:40 in the local evening, which can be regarded as the concept of going early and returning late, so that we can play more London!

We reserve a lot of time from London to Iceland to avoid flight delays. At that time, I chose WizzAir which departed at 16:10 in the afternoon, and the return flight was at 19:55 in the evening. European low-cost airlines heard that luggage is more expensive than people. I found out that it was true. Because winter clothes were too heavy, we dragged a suitcase by one person. At that time, we bought two 20kg luggage to check in, and could bring two personal luggage on board. (<10kg, 40x20x30cm).

Iceland Self-Help | Iceland Accommodation Costs

During the nine-day itinerary, two days were on the plane, so six nights' accommodation was booked.
We booked five nights in downtown ReykjavikIsland Apartment(Including kitchen), the total price is22,819 yuan / 2 people(including foreign transaction fee of 337 yuan). We expect to go to southern Iceland for two days and one night in the middle, and then go back to Reykjavik for the last night, and then fly back to the UK the next day. But at that time, the price of booking four nights on the booking website was similar (almost the same) as booking five nights, and we were afraid that it would be inconvenient to move our luggage around, so we booked five nights accommodation in Reykjavik, which is equivalent to Brunnholl in southern Iceland The accommodation actually overlapped with the Island Apartment in Reykjavik for one day. For accommodation in Brunnholl in southern Iceland, please refer to the following article👇

And stayed in a cheap hotel the night back to England in IcelandHoliday Inn Express London Luton Airport, Located next to the airport only, the price is2234/two people(Including the foreign transaction fee of 33 yuan). In addition, after getting off at Luton Airport, because it is late at night, I don’t know how the security is going there at night. For safety, we have booked a taxi to take us to the accommodation. The price is1053 yuan(Including a foreign transaction fee of 16 yuan). But it turned out that there is no need to add a reservation, and the accommodation is not far from the airport.

To sum up, the total cost of 9 days and 7 nights in Iceland + London this time was 182,288 yuan, and the average person spent about 91144 yuan.It is really expensive, because it is a Chinese New Year flight, and the flight is not particularly cheap. In addition, when I travel to Iceland in winter, I am not familiar with self-driving in the snow, so the cost of traveling with a tour group is still higher.In fact, I still feel that I must go with a group when I go to Iceland in winter. Iceland is very windy, and there are often squalls and snow when driving. If you are driving by yourself, it is really too dangerous!If it is summer, you can consider driving by yourself. The above is the cost of our New Year trip to Iceland. Share it with friends who are interested in traveling in Iceland in winter.
