How can I get to Iceland?
Frequent flights are operated to Iceland from major gateways in Europe and North America, many on a daily basis. Flight times are 2-3 hours from major gateways in Western Europe and 5-6 hours from eastern North America. Most international flights arrive to Keflavík Airport, located 50 minutes away from Reykjavik.

Air Iceland has regular flights to many of the bigger communities in all parts of the island. If you need to get to one of the smaller villages, there is usually a flight to a nearby town and a bus to the village.
What kind of outdoor clothing should I bring with me?
For maximum comfort, we recommend bringing a good wind-proof/water-proof jacket and plenty of lightweight thermal layers (preferably woolen) as well as sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes with good grip on the soles. Hats, gloves and scarves are also a good idea for all seasons.
If you forget something, there are several shops offering quality outdoor wear in the Reykjavik area. Downtown Reykjavik also has a number of second-hand stores like Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc.
