Frequently asked questions

What is the best area to stay in Reykjavik?

If you’re visiting Reykjavik for the first time, stay in Midborg. It’s compact, in the heart of the downtown area, and home to many of the best restaurants, bars and attractions - including the Harpa concert hall, the Viking-themed Sun Voyager sculpture, and Hallgrimskirkja church.

Where should I stay when visiting Iceland?

The best place to stay when visiting Iceland is in the capital city, Reykjavik. It’s a short drive from the main international airport at Keflavik, and the hub of the country’s, tourism, history and culture. From Reykjavik, you can set off on a Golden Circle tour, a road trip along the south coast, or an epic expedition around the ring road.

Where should I stay in Iceland to see the Northern Lights?

The lower the light pollution, the better view you will have of the Northern Lights when they decide to appear. Most of Iceland falls under that category, and even the capital city, Reykjavik, is close to secluded spots. If you’re staying in the city, head a few kilometres from downtown to Grótta at the tip of Seltjarnarnes peninsula. Or climb up Öskjuhlið for views over the capital. Staying in Reykjavik also gives you easy access to the regular Northern Lights tours that take Aurora hunters out to sea and into the countryside.

How do I get from the international airport to my accommodation in Reykjavik?

Keflavik International Airport (KEF) is located about 50 minutes by car from the capital of Iceland. You can choose the airport shuttle option that will take you to your accommodation in Reykjavik. This is the cheapest solution, but the trip will take about 1.5 hours. You can also choose a taxi (around 16,000 ISK - 18,000 ISK per course), private transfer with a chauffeur, or you can pick up your rental car directly after arrival in Iceland.

When should I book accommodation in Reykjavik to get the best price?

Whether you're coming in winter or summer, book your accommodation in Reykjavik in advance. The best places offered at a reasonable price quickly disappear from the market. Some properties are fully booked up to a year before.
