Most people flock to the warm, sunny weather of the Caribbean or Mexico during the winter — if you’re willing to deal with the cold, though, a European getaway is a great idea, especially when flights are this affordable. We’re seeing round-trip fares from several US cities (including the West Coast) to Oslo (OSL), Stockholm (ARN), Copenhagen (CPH) and Helsinki (HEL) from just $339, valid for departures January through May 2017. The best deals seem to be on Icelandair, but other carriers like Air Canada, Norwegian and United are also offering discounts from certain cities. Search for your desired destination and dates on Google Flights, then continue booking through the airline’s website (if possible) or with OTA like Orbitz.
