Of course you are free to get to the start line, however you wish, but We are working with All-Iceland a UK based travel agency specialising in Iceland ( being UK based this gives you the important ATOL and ABTA protection ) they have negotiated special prices on flights for OMM competitors, flying from the UK, they can offer you a simple package, or you can add as much or as little as you wish.
Due to people realising just how easy it is to get to Iceland, and the beauty of the unique landscape, Iceland has seen a massive rise in bookings from overseas visitors, Flights and accommodation are being filled at a rate not previously seen before.
