How to get to Iceland

FLYING

There is only one international airport in Iceland and it’s located in Keflavík about 48 km from Reykjavík. Information can be found at www.keflavikairport.com.

 

Direct flights

Here are some of the airlines that now fly to Iceland.

Getting from the KEF airport to Reykjavík

Here you have a couple of options.

  • Taking the public bus - We call the bus "strætó" and it's very bright and yellow. The one number 55 takes you to Reykjavík.
    Go to www.bus.is for information regarding it.
  • Taking a bus/coach - There are two big bus companies in Iceland. Grayline and Reykjavík Excursions. They both offer bus tours to Reykjavík. You will find them easily at the airport. The price is very similar.
  • Get a Taxi - They are usually just waiting right outside. It's smart to hear the price in advance even though they have a meter. 
  • Hire a car - Budget, Hertz, Europcar and Avis all have an office at the airport so you can talk to them when you arrive.
