Every autumn, Reykjavik rocks a little louder! Hear the hottest bands from Iceland, Europe, the Americas and beyond in the coolest setting on Earth. The festival's intimate venues are located throughout the capital's downtown area, so you can hop from one performance to the next.
The basic Iceland Airwaves vacation package is three nights (including two nights in Iceland) departing November 2, 2017, returning November 5, 2017. Since popular events take place on Sunday the 5th, we suggest adding that day to your trip and returning back to North America on Monday, November 6. Please note schedules and availability for all package options are based on your North American gateway. For example, Minneapolis and Denver packages require an extra hotel night at the beginning and one at the end for Minneapolis, with departures on November 1, returning November 6; and Chicago requires one additional night added at the beginning, departing November 1, returning November 5.
For more information on the event and scheduled performers visit icelandairwaves.is. Also, while in Iceland, we highly recommend considering any of the many day tours that are available for exploring everything from Reykjavik's cultural offerings, to the beautiful Icelandic countryside.
Important: Please note passengers under 20 years old cannot attend the festival events.
