Iceland or Belgium?

Jump to last reply

I'm using miles for an extensive rtw trip. My second last stop is London. As departure taxes are super expensive from London I was thinking of heading to Brussels by Eurostar and using miles to fly back. Or, buying an inexpensive one way ticket on Iceland Air with a two night stopover in Reykjavik.

This is for travel in November. I've been to both, Belgium and Iceland. My main interest in Iceland is to see the Northern Lights, but I would only stop for two nights and I do understand that's possible the Northern Lights won't be active during my stay (or that it may snow or rain).

In Belgium, visiting Ghent is of some appeal. I've been to Brugges on a previous trip and don't care to return. I'm a beer drinker, so I'll enjoy some local brews (oh, and chocolate too). Would also like to visit the Atomium from inside (I vaguely remember seeing it from outside on my first visit to Belgium). If I choose Belgium instead of Iceland I'd spend three nights there before flying across the pond.

What are the pros and cons of each destination and what do people on this forum recommend?
