WOW air is offering passengers a stopover opportunity in Iceland for up to a week at no additional airfare.

Having recently announced flights from Gatwick and Bristol to the Californian destinations of Los Angeles and San Francisco, the airline's stopover option gives travellers the chance to break up long-haul journeys across the Atlantic and is available to book on routes between Europe and the USA via Iceland in either direction.

Svana Fridriksdottir, the carrier's director of communications, said: “Our low-cost transatlantic fares have been a great success with travellers looking to spread their wings and head to North America. Until now our short stop in Keflavik has been a teaser of what Iceland has to offer, but we are looking forward to giving travellers the opportunity to experience Iceland - quite the contrast from our North American and European destinations.”

Other North American destinations in 2016 include Boston, Baltimore-Washington, Montreal and Toronto.
