Iceland one of top budget travel destinations for 2009

Every cloud has a silver lining they say…  so in the midst of the recession comes good news:

The US travel magazine “Budget Travel” votes Iceland one of 10 top budget travel destinations for 2009 when they reveal the best value hotspots for the New Year.

“The dramatic collapse of Iceland’s currency, the kronur, has hung a 48-percent-off sign on virtually everything for American tourists. A hot dog (an Icelandic specialty) in downtown Reykjavik, for example, runs about 210 kronur—that’s $3.50 in U.S. dollars at last year’s exchange rates, but about $2 today. Meanwhile, in a bid to lure tourists, Icelandair has recently rolled out steep airfare discounts. Published fares to Iceland for early 2009 are down 22 percent from a year earlier, says Expedia. “

Borea are offering discounts as well, some are posted on our site but please don’t hesitate to contact us and check out the latest offers.
