Visiting Iceland? Do you have a Stopover buddy? Iceland Air will provide you with one, who will show you the country’s hidden sights, according to Travel + Leisure

To entice more travelers to visit Iceland, Icelandair is bringing back its popular Stopover Buddy Service, pairing visitors with a member of the Icelandair team to offer exclusive tours and experiences in the country,” reports T+L’s Talia Avakian.

The airline already gives visitors the opportunity to stopover in the country for up to seven nights without an additional fee and there’s no charge for the stopover buddy, either.

“Its Stopover Buddy Service gives passengers the chance to explore some of Iceland’s top experiences and destinations through the eyes of a local—for free,” notes Avakian.

Through March 31, trans-Atlantic passengers stopping over with Icelandair can request a buddy to accompany them on excursions around the country.

“Since the Stopover Buddies are locals, they can take visitors to some of the country’s best off-the-beaten-path locations and secret gigs. They can also help arrange birthday parties and weddings at a more affordable price,” says Avakian.
