Here is some information for planning your trip:
When you fly into Iceland your international flight will land at KEFLAVÍK International Airport (KEF). From Keflavík Airport it is a 1 hour bus ride into Reykjavík City Centre, where you will find the domestic airport. The bus will stop at the Reykjavík Bus Terminal (BSÍ). Bus tickets can be purchased in advance via FlyBus or at the airport for a slightly higher price.
BSÍ is only ten minutes walk from REYKJAVÍK Domestic Airport (RKV), or you can take a second bus from BSÍ. From the RKV Airport you can catch your flight to EGILSSTAÐIR Domestic Airport (EGS). We will pick you up there on your arrival on either the 1st or 2nd day of the month; we time the pick up to align with the midday flight. If you have no other option than to arrive later then please talk to us about it.

If you choose to take a bus to the East, the North Route will get you toEgilsstaðir in two days, and it is about the same price as flying. The bus company for this is Strætó. We will then pick you up in Egilsstaðir on your arrival, again on the 1st or 2nd of the month.
If you plan on hiring a car we recommend you to take the south route, Reykjavík – Vík – Höfn – Stöðvarfjörður. We advise you to only consider it as an option during the Summer season, from May to September. The weather in Iceland is very unpredictable and during the winter it can be a very dangerous and a difficult trip to undertake. With sightseeing and good weather it can take about 10 hours.
