Is Iceland an bad idea for a honeymoon?

Jump to last reply

I know this sounds crazy, but I have recently become obsessed with Iceland and I have been trying really hard to convince my fiance that an Iceland/Norway trip is a good idea for a honeymoon. He wants to go somewhere with a beach, and we would like to compromise and spend 2 nights in Iceland and then 3-4 nights in either Barcelona or the south of France or the Amalfi Coast. Except this itinerary does not seem to exist. Iceland Air supposedly has a "Take a Break" in Iceland where you just have a day or half day lay over in Reykjavik but the price is $3000+ when I enter the itinerary. Expedia doesn't even offer it and Orbitz is upwards of $3000 too. So I'm thinking my Iceland trip is just a pipe dream at this point, but I still just have this strong desire to go. Maybe I will just have to wait and go at another time. So - tell me - is this doable or not? Am I crazy? Are there any budget airlines that fly into Iceland? I know RyanAir doesn't.

Neither of us are beachy people, but we LOVED Phi Phi Islands & Phuket in Thailand (only for about two days... about our limit for an island for two reasons - sun burn and boredom). Ideally a place that has a big city and also a beach... Or at least a beach with LOTS to do.

So should I just save Iceland for another trip? Not for the honeymoon? If that's the case, where is a good place in Europe for a 5-6 day honeymoon? Our favorite cities we've visited are London, Brugge, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Yokohama, etc... Love modern cities but also love the old too.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks!
