We know you’ve been hunting for an affordable way to journey to the Land of Fire and Ice (also known as the insanely popular filming spots for HBO’s Game of Thrones). Consider this your excuse. Iceland-based WOW Air, the country’s only low-cost carrier, is bringing back its insanely cheap $99 flights to Iceland.

WOW Air is celebrating their expansion to Newark, New Jersey with these insanely low fares. Tickets for a one-way flight to Reykjavik start at $99, with continuing flights to 21 European destinations including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Paris, London, Berlin, Dublin, and Frankfurt costing as little as $200—including tax.

Newark will be the airline’s seventh destination in North America, following a recent expansion to the West Coast (San Francisco, Los Angeles), Canada (Montreal, Toronto) and its first U.S. hubs in Boston and Washington, D.C. Flights from California are also on sale for $99 one-way. 

Travelers flying with WOW will definitely appreciate the fresh new airplanes, though you won’t find any in-flight entertainment of complimentary snacks.

With all the cash you’ll save on airfare, you can splurge on an epic, Travel + Leisure curated journey to Iceland. Just imagine all the waterfalls, lava fields, black sand beaches, and geothermal pools. For more inspiration, watch this wanderlust-worthy music video, created by Iceland’s unofficial tourism ambassador, Justin Bieber.
