Reykjavik travel tips

1) Use Flybus or Airport Express to get to and from the Reykjavik airport

Check the options at local carriers like Flybus or Airport Express. Flybus is more expensive because of the Wi-Fi availability, while Airport Express sometimes doesn’t have it. On your way to the city, we would advise you to choose Airport Express. Unlike Flybus, a given carrier has a common price for any fare — say, to the bus station or a certain hotel. Even if you forgot to mention your hotel in Reykjavik in online booking, you could just remind a driver about the station needed, and he would help you get there.

2) Reykjavik offers accommodations to any taste and budget

All locals recommend staying downtown to enjoy the city. Take into your consideration such streets as 101, 105 and 107. However, these streets are pretty expensive and suitable only for party animals due to their lively night traffic and noize. Going 5 kilometres to the west, you can find more affordable options, such as Seltjarnarnes street. Here you can admire the coast in silence. Or go 5 kilometres to the east to Laugardalur valley for calm rest since here you can swim in the city's largest outdoor geothermal pool.

3) Pay a visit to the Pernal museum in Reykjavik instead of the Northern Lights

Unlike natural Northern Lights, which can be elusive, the Pernal museum will impress you. Here you can see the imitation of Northern Lights in the planetarium together with a Reykjavik observation deck and an underwater exhibit.
