Reykjavik is ridiculously expensive. And winter is cold. I would not go there even with a free flight.

The shortest day will be on November 30th with only 5 hours of daylight.
November is characterized by a gradual decrease in temperature. The average high temperature is 4 degrees Celsius (40 F), with the (average) highest temperature on November 1st, only reaching slightly above 5 degrees Celsius (41 F).

It's definitely an expensive place to begin with but I imagine the dates for these cheap flights would put you into a less expensive season.

I wouldn't be able to comment on where to stay, etc.

The incessant rain and wind adds to the fun...

Great time to see the Northern Lights though. And their temps are comparable to the GTA at that time of year.

Just to give you a heads up on what to expect in Iceland:
- First off, it's a beautiful country and a fantasy land of sorts with pictureque natural landscapes.
- You can try to go for a short city-break, but the real beauty lies outside of Reykjavik. There's not a tremendous amount to do in the city. But there are spectacular waterfalls and cliffs along the coast.
- If you plan on renting a car, bring someone who can drive standard /manual transmission. Automatic is like 6x to 10x the price and available in only a handful of models, if any.
- If you plan on journeying by car around the country, keep in mind that many roads are closed for winter as of September/October. So the flight dates may very much restrict you to the lower east corner and tourist circuits. Don't get there in November and be surprised that one can't drive all around the country.
- Everything is expensive, including food. Your best best would be to stay at a B&B and cook some meals on your own. But not everybody has the time or energy for this. Buy granola bars for the road.
[If you like what I have to say, please give me a thumbs up.]

I was in Iceland about 2 months ago, definitely take these tips with you, except I found renting an automatic adding 15% compared to a manual, I rented a manual but auto wasn't too much higher. There are many rental companies so make sure you google and compare, also there is a site where you can rental people's vehicles for much cheaper but you need to rent ahead of time, ranges from economy to off road vehicle with bedding.

hostels are the key, I found hostels at 50% off, and then found some at regular price, google around and check their website as sometimes it can be cheaper. Go groceries and don't eat out unless you need to or can afford to do so. I went to a cafe that was rated cheap and the conversion was $17 CDN for a coffee and bagel. Groceries wasn't too bad, maybe 1.5x of what I would pay in Canada. Ask the front desk where to buy groceries as they had said places vary greatly.
Hope this helps! I loved Iceland and it is my favorite place, something out of a disney movie.

5 hours of daylight doesn't sound good to me.

When is the best time of year to go where there will be daylight and you can actually move around and see things, and see the northern lights?

Just went there a week ago. Yes, everything's soooo expensive. However, Costco opened there May 2017. Membership reached 90,000 out of the 300,000 population. You can go there to shop with your Costco membership. Have to go to the membership first to get a temp pass. It will definitely save a lot if you plan on preparing your own food.

This is amazing. Between their discounted gift card rack, cheap hot dogs at the cafeteria, and free samples...I think you've found the key to making Iceland affordable for the RFDer lol.
