Getting Around Iceland

Getting Around in Iceland

By air (flights) and road (cars, buses and cycles).

Getting Around Iceland By Air

Flights are the main mode of internal travel in Iceland. The ride might be bumpy near rough terrain, for instance, towering fjords and mountains. Reykjavik Airport is the centre for domestic flights, and people can fly to numerous domestic destinations from here. The airlines which operate scheduled domestic flights are Air Iceland and Eagle Air. A few destinations in Iceland can also be flown to and from Akureyri.

Getting Around Iceland By Road

Car is the most flexible option for inland travel but renting a car is relatively expensive. Tourists have to pay at least ISK 4000 per day for a two wheeler, and upwards of ISK 12,000 per day for a four-wheeler and these prices include only a basic car insurance, an additional one has to be purchased. Cycle: buying a bike can be expensive so tourists should bring their touring bikes. However, a previous bicycling experience is a must. Weather conditions need to be viable before touring on a cycle is attempted.
