Being from London and having done film making in New York and spent time there, Iceland is the perfect intermediary location. Just two hours away.
I love all three - so if you live in London or New York, don't forget Iceland is right on the way.
Perfectly situated between the two cities it is a wonderful escape from the *real world and still so close to both.
It may seem off the beaten track, but really it is the perfect spot.
And from Reykjavik - just five - six hours to NYC.
The airlines offer stopovers for people traveling to New York from London and vice-versa. With a trip to the gorgeous Blue Lagoon and hotel stay for one night.
