Iceland 'more affordable' for stag night revellers

People planning a stag do overseas in the coming months might turn to Iceland in the hunt for a bargain weekend away that will not break the bank.

The capital city of Reykjavik is famous for its spirited nightlife and array of bars and clubs, providing the perfect ingredients for a traditional raucous stag night.

And while Iceland has long been considered an expensive option for British tourists, the Times journalist John McNamara claims the country is now much more affordable.

He revealed that the economic crisis has made it cheaper to make the most of all that Iceland has to offer, from the party streets of the capital city to the spectacular scenery of the country's Golden Circle.

In addition, the three-hour flight time from Gatwick to Reykjavik, combined with a "barely noticeable time difference", means stag parties need waste no time in hitting the town once they get there.

Those looking to celebrate their last night of freedom this summer might therefore opt for Iceland ahead of traditional destinations such as Prague.

According to the Daily Mail writer Tom Chessyre, the Czech capital has seen a significant reduction in the number of visiting stag parties in recent months.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19188448-ADNFCR
