Thinking of hitting Scotland anytime soon?

According to the airline, some of Edinburgh’s must-sees include the Edinburgh Castle, Highlands, Summerhall, and their festivals – such as the Fringe Festival taking place throughout August.

Flights will leave Toronto Pearson Airport on Tuesdays and Saturdays with a two-hour layover in Iceland. But our advice? Use that time and stay in Iceland a little longer.

As of this summer, Wow Air services 30 destinations across Europe, the US, and Canada. It was ranked as the 5th best low-cost, long-haul airline in the world at this year’s Skytrax World Airline Awards.
