Icelandair has a very low round trip fare from Oslo to Denver or Chicago for departures in October and November with a free stopover allowed in Reykjavik in each direction for up to seven days.
Big advantages of Icelandair over Norwegian and WOW are two checked bags or two carry-on bags fly free and a free stopover in Iceland is allowed.
Here is an example of the kind of crazy itineraries I fly to see more cities and make multiple trips to Europe for cheap.
This post shows how a person starting in Denver can go to Scandinavia on two separate trips, visit Stockholm, Oslo and Iceland for around $1,000 in airfare.

While one-way fares from Denver to Oslo are around $450 on Icelandair, a flight on Norwegian one way to Oslo or Stockholm can be as low as $200 to start the journey from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, Orlando or Ft. Lauderdale. A flight to a Norwegian Airport like LAS, LAX or SFO/OAK is under $100 one-way. A flight between Oslo and Stockholm is under $100 one way.

There are all kinds of possibilities with these low Icelandair fares. I picked random dates and did not try to set up an ideal itinerary. The total fare can probably be reduced down to $800 if you are in Chicago.
Bottom line is Icelandair Oslo – Denver or Chicago for around $370 round trip with free stopovers in Iceland opens up lots of possibilities for low cost multiple trips to Europe.
