If you are not planning on renting a car, the most common and best way for small groups is the FlyBus from Keflavik International Airport.
When it comes to selecting the Flybus you have two options: the regular Flybus which takes you to the central bus station at BSÍ and the Flybus+ which drops you off at a selected location.
Your nearest drop off is bus stop 12 – Höfðatorg.
If you have a return ticket with FlyBus it’s most convenient for you to take the bus to the airport from BSÍ bus station.
The public bus nr. 55 travels regularly throughout the day from the airport to the capital area. Please note that the bus does not always drive all the way to BSI bus station, downtown Reykjavik. In those cases the last stop is at Fjörður, in Hafnarfjörður, which is a town just outside Reykjavik.
You can see the prices for bus nr. 55 here.
You can purchase your bus ticket at the airport with card or cash.
Please note that while this is the fastest way of commuting from the airport, Taxi is also the most expensive one.
The price for 1-4 people is 16.500 ISK and 21.500 ISK for 5-8 persons (this price can vary – price collected November 2022).
