WOW air's stopover option gives you the chance to break up long-haul journeys across the Atlantic and have a unique experience in Iceland before going further. The WOW stopover is available to book on return flights between North America and Europe via Iceland in either direction.
There is no additional charge for creating a WOW stopover in Iceland. However, when booking two separate flight legs instead of a connecting flight with a short layover, each leg can be higher (or lower) priced. It depends on supply and demand for each flight. In some cases, the price can, therefore be higher, lower or even almost the same. Also note that, when entering a new country, airport taxes for that airport could be different between stopping in Iceland and travelling directly via Iceland over the Atlantic ocean.
The WOW air stopover option is only available on round-trip reservations. If you are travelling one-way but would like to stop for a few days in Iceland you need to make two different reservations and two separate payments.
