Every Airline Should Provide One


One of the perks of flying Icelandair for transatlantic passengers is the option for a free stopover in Iceland. Now the national carrier is offering to provide an individual travel friend during stopovers.

February through April this year, flyers can request a “Stopover Buddy” —an actual Icelandair staff member who will share a piece of their homeland as a personal guide. These “Buddy” experiences are surprisingly diverse and interesting. They range from high adventure wilderness activities like skiing and mountain climbing to more sedate ones such as cooking and cultural events.


I’m just disappointed that the “Stopover Buddy” program will be ending before my next stopover in Iceland later this year. If you’re thinking about a trip to Iceland, check out the program here.
