Backpack is the way to go if you're no frills and don't want to pay extra for luggage. I bought this backpack (was on sale for $65 at Live Out There) specifically for a WOW flight. Checked the dimensions to make sure it was within their guidelines for a personal item, which is free. Was able to fit about a week's worth of clothes plus necessities. The lady took one look at it and didn't even ask me to put it in the sizer. Leave the personal item tag that they attach to your bag for the return flight.

It was pricey when I went to Sweden a few years back in winter. I am sure Iceland is probably more expensive than Sweden

Any perspective for young families? Is airbnb say two cottages on opposite ends of the ring work?

Just got back from Iceland. Be prepared to spend money there, it is not a cheap trip. But absolutely worth it.

I booked a round-trip flight for two adults for $1100 tax-in (before seeing this post). That was for the middle-tier tickets that allow seat selection and one checked/one carry-on item per person. Choosing an exit row seat or additional leg room seat was not included and an additional $60/ticket/flight.
This fare also allows for advanced seat selection - for a fee. There's an image in the post you quoted with exact fees if anyone wants more details.

And just so there's no confusion, I've updated OP with seat selection fees for WOW Air. As I mentioned before, very reasonable - even compared with Canadian legacy carriers that charge $25+ per seat per direction over the water.

The shortest day will be on November 30th with only 5 hours of daylight.
No, the shortest day will be the one closest to the Winter Solstice, as always. This year it is December 21. That day will be 4:07:15 long in Reykjavik. November 30th's day will be 5:05:25.

I flew wow this summer and left our seats till the airport. Got put in the exit row, presumably because nobody wanted to pay extra for it

Since this is turning into an Iceland tips thread, I'll add mine:

- Download GPS map for free here and use Garmin's Base Camp software to load it into your Garmin device. Just used it last month and worked beautifully.
- For walking around Reykjavik, download offline map on Google map or use third party offline maps.
- Credit card is widely accepted and wifi is everywhere. Only needed cash when buying from street vendor.

Thanks for posting. If the price difference with a regular airline (not knocking WOW, but not too keen on no frills) is like $100 bucks, then I'd probably just stick with that. .

I went for a Reykjavik trip, and i'd recommend spending a bit extra to see at least one city in Europe also and just do an Iceland stopover instead. not really that much to see in only Iceland tbh
