Our preffered way to travel
The Flybus is located right outside the Keflavík International Airport. The bus leaves 35-40 minutes after the arrival of each flight. Passengers should keep an eye on the screen in the terminal to see when the bus leaves or ask for information at the Flybus information desk at the arrival hall. The trip to Reykjavík will take approximately 45 minutes and upon request, the bus will stop at Hotel Viking in Hafnarfjörður and at Aktu Taktu in Garðabær. When reaching Reykjavík our first stop will be the BSÍ Bus Terminal. Transfers are available to all major hotels, the Youth Hostel, Laugardalur camping area and the domestic airport. For these transfers, the driver will ask you to board smaller busses.
