From the very start, our biggest foreign audience for Secret Solstice has been our incredible guests from the UK. And because of that, we thought it was about time to put together a list of packages and information for travel, accommodation, experiences, and just about everything else you might need to know when planning your trip to Secret Solstice 2015.
In 2015, we have three major ticketing levels. A standard 3-day festival pass at 19,900kr (approx £100), 3-day VIP pass at 29,900kr (approx £151), and the ultimate festival ticket “Óðinn” (limited to only 50 tickets in total) for 89,900kr (approx £454).
Unlike 2014, there will be no single-day passes at all during our 2015 event, and all three levels of ticket will allow you the full three days access to the festival site between the 19th-21st of June 2015. Full information on ticketing types can be found here, or you can feast your eyes on all the details on the ultra-exclusive luxury Óðinn pass here.
Although getting in a big metal bird and flying halfway across the Atlantic may seem like a bit of a stretch when it comes to getting here, most flights from the UK are as little as two hours each way. Faster than even some London commutes to and from work, this means you have no excuse not to look into booking your air travel to Secret Solstice right now.
Our airline partner WOW Air can get you to and from Keflavík airport from London Gatwick, or Dublin Ireland, for as little as £197 return at the cheapest rate, which will even give you an extra few days to check out the stunning nation of Iceland while you’re here. Alternatively, there are a number of other airlines that fly to and from Iceland from every major destination in the British Isles, including EasyJet, Icelandair, Ryanair, and many more.
For the cheapest flights in and out of Iceland, we recommend using a flight booking engine like Kayak, or Skyscanner, which can help you get the lowest rate possible. And remember, stay a few extra days before or after the festival (or even longer), to get cheaper deals on flights.
The best thing about partying at Secret Solstice 2015 is the fact that our event is held in the centre of Reykjavík, meaning there are more options than you can poke a Viking’s spear at when it comes to laying your sweet little head on a pillow at night.
Firstly, if you feel like sleeping under the midnight sun, you’ll be happy to know that Secret Solstice maintains a camp ground next to the festival site. For only 9,000kr (approx £45), you’ll gain access to our camp site from Thursday night to Monday morning, providing you can bring your own camping equipment.
If camping isn’t for you, there are dozens of budget sleeping options around the festival site in the form of hostels. By far our favourite is Kex Hostel (named one of the top five hostels on the planet) for the atmosphere, food, and amazing staff, though you’d better be quick as rooms are selling fast. If you can’t find something at Kex, a quick Google search for “Reykjavík Hostels” should pull up something to your liking.
As far as hotels are concerned, these may be your ideal option if you have heavier pockets. Keep in mind that hotel prices can spike considerably during the solstice weekend when Secret Solstice 2015 will be held, so our advice is to book as early as you can to avoid potentially paying £400 or more a night.
Lastly, there are a ton of AirBnB options in Reykjavík, though again these tend to get snapped up quick during the festival weekend. Get on searching for something relevant now, again to avoid potentially paying more than you should.
Over the next few days, we’ll be selling on our site airport and Blue Lagoon transfers via our transport partner Reykjavík Excursions, as well as some amazing add-on packages and side events for Secret Solstice 2015. We don’t recommend you wait until these are available to book your main travel/accom as this is getting more expensive by the day, and we’ll notify you anyway via social media when these launch.
We can’t wait to see you in Reykjavík this June for the second ever Secret Solstice festival. The only place on the planet you can party for three days in the midnight sun.
