We’ve had such a great time!

This winter, we’ve matched our Stopover Buddies with hundreds of keen travellers. The reception has been phenomenal and we’d like to extend our thanks to each and everyone who took the time to participate, request, and follow!

Now, our Buddies are preparing for the next season: autumn 2016. They will return full force with new adventures and outlooks, ready to greet Stopover passengers with the vivacity and positivity Icelandair employees are known for!

CULTURE BUDDIES

Many asked a Culture Buddy to guide them through the national mind-set while trying out their usual activities in a very different setting.

Culture exists outside of museums too. And even outside of Reykjavík. That much can be verified by anyone who picked a Culture Buddy.

Joining a Culture Buddy to see how a local marries two hobbies together proved quite popular. Now, so many know how knitting and ice-skating go together.

FOOD BUDDIES

Unleashing your inner gourmand on a culinary expedition with a Food Buddy was much-requested and much-loved. We can only assume they all left full of good memories and good food!
