If you want to visit Copenhagen in December or January, there are plenty of flight options (except around Christmas and New Year’s).
Let’s say you choose a one-week vacation in January. Although it’ll be chilly in Copenhagen during this month, there will be fewer crowds of tourists and potentially cheaper hotel room rates. The majority of these flights have a short layover in Iceland’s Keflavik Airport (KEF) each way.
An Economy Light ticket on Icelandair will cost $392 round trip. With this ticket type, you’ll only be able to bring one carry-on bag.
If you want to check a bag or select a seat, you’ll have to pay a fee. Instead of paying to check a bag, it’ll be in your favor to upgrade to Economy Standard for $120, as it includes both a checked bag and complimentary seat selection.

These flights are more than $200 cheaper than usual. In fact, the flights from Chicago are almost $700 cheaper than usual, according to Google Flights. So, if you don’t mind vacationing in the cold, head to beautiful Copenhagen in the offseason — you’ll likely score some hotel deals, too.
