About Our Iceland Transfers
Our Iceland Transfers are designed to get you from point A to point B in a convenient, hassle-free way. Here, you’ll find both one-way and roundtrip transfers between the capital city of Reykjavík and some of the most popular destinations in Iceland. These include Keflavík International Airport, the Blue Lagoon, and the Icelandic Highlands.
You will find both public and private transportations here. The coach buses offer a cheap but convenient alternative way to explore Iceland, as well as freedom, since you will not be bound by tour groups or guides. Private transfers provide you with a more personal touch. They are a great way to discover Iceland in comfort, luxury and style.
International Airport Transfers
Here you will find a variety of transport options between Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavík City.
The airport is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, which is about a 45-minute drive from the capital. It is surrounded by an ancient lava field which makes the drive between the city and airport very scenic.
The coach bus transfers are an economical way to travel between Keflavík Airport and the city. The best way for those on a budget is between the airport and the BSÍ bus terminal. For more convenience, it is possible to upgrade the ride to include a pick-up or a drop-off at your accommodation in the city.
Private transfers offer more comfort and luxury and include a pick-up or drop-off at your accommodation.
En route to the airport is the Blue Lagoon Spa. It is possible to include a stop there on your way to the airport. That way, you’ll arrive for your flight feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
Domestic Airport Transfers
The Domestic Airport in Reykjavík is located in the downtown area. The best way to get from the airport to your hotel is via taxi or a public bus. The bus is the cheapest option, but it can be cumbersome when travelling with luggage. If your accommodation is close by, the taxi might not be that much more expensive than the bus.
Blue Lagoon Transfers
Those looking to visit the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon Spa can book a transfer here. Please note that a ticket to the Lagoon might not be included, only the transfer. Read the “Included” section of each individual tour to see if entry to the spa is included or not.
The Blue Lagoon is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, midway between Reykjavík and Keflavík International Airport. It is a convenient and popular detour for those travelling between the city and the airport. It is also possible to book a roundtrip to the Blue Lagoon from Reykjavík.
Icelandic Highland Bus Transfers
The Highlands of Iceland are a large uninhabited area of volcanoes, hot springs, lava fields, glaciers, black sands, lakes, and forests.
Here you can find coach bus transfers to both Landmannalaugar — a geothermal area with hot springs and colourful mountains — as well as Þórsmörk or “Thor’s Valley”. These regions are popular amongst hikers in the summer and offer visitors a rare glimpse into one of Europe’s largest unpopulated areas.
Please note that there are no guides for the Icelandic Highland Bus Transfers, only a ride to and from a designated bus stop. If you are looking for a guided tour of this remote region, check out Highland Tours.
