The international airport is located in Keflavik, a 45-minute drive from downtown Reykjavik. The main airlines serving the airport are Icelandair and Wow air but a number of other airlines also fly to Iceland from selected location, such as Easy Jet and Norwegian.
Getting From the Airport
There are two ways to get from the airport to Reykjavik: by taxi or by shuttle bus. The taxi ride usually costs a little over €100 but the busses are a more cheaper option. Two bus companies are available for the route between the airport and the city: the Flybus and Grayline. One-way tickets cost € 15-20, the more expensive option includes a drop-off service at your hotel.
Places to Stay
The closest hotel to the University is the Hotel Saga, just across the street from the University main building (see map under Location). A number of hotels are located in the centre of Reykjavik within walking distance from the University. Luxurious options would be for example Hotel Borg or Hotel Holt, but a variety of low-budget accommodation is also available. Many of these hotels and guesthouses are comfortable and within walking distance, such as Baldursbrá Guesthouse, Travel Inn (Sóleyjargata) , Grettir Guesthouse, Metropolitan Hotel and Eric the Red Guesthouse. Booking.com tends to have the cheaper options available. And of course many locals rent out apartments or rooms through airbnb.
