How do I get to Isafjordur?

Isafjordur is much closer than you think.... and it's not even that expensive to get there...

Now there are four airlines with scheduled flights into Iceland. These are Icelandair, Iceland Express, SAS and British Airways. As far as we can see there are direct flights to Iceland from the following 28 cities during the summer months:

You arrive in Keflavik International Airport about 40 minutes away from the capital city of Reykjavik. From the domestic airport in Reykjavik there are 2-3 daily 40 minute flights to Isafjordur. You can take the Fly-Bus between the airports and most of the time you can continue same day. Check out Air Iceland for schedules and special offers.

You can also rent a car and drive to Isafjordur. It´s about 450-500 km depending on which route you take, of which 5-15% is non-paved gravel road. The drive will normally take you around six hours.

For accommodation in Reykjavik there are many options of hotels and guesthouses. We reccomend a nice guesthouse called BB44. Travellers coming to our trips get a special discount.

We strongly recommend to spend a few extra days visiting the West Fjords and other parts of Iceland. Our friends at West-Tours travel agency can help you to plan your trip in more details.
