My girlfriend and I are going to Reykjavik on Thursday, flying from Edinburgh, and returning on Monday night. I have a few questions and would greatly appreciate people on here’s opinions/advice.
My Itinerary is as Follows:
Thursday 20th: Arrive late into Keflavik Airport, around 20:25. Catch the next bus from Airport to Bus Terminal, which is only a few minutes walk from our hotel. Dump bags in hotel and head out for some food and a walk around the town.
Friday 21st: Walk around the city during the day and visit the Hallgrimskirkja, Perlan, the harbour and the famous Bæjarins Beztu. Possibly take the city tour bus as well. Northern lights tour booked for 8:30.
Saturday 22nd: Golden Circle tour booked, which takes all day. Think we will try the Runtur at night.
Sunday 23rd: South Coast and Glacier Walk tour booked, which takes all day. Possibly use the night for our free second attempt at Northern Lights, if we are unsuccessful on Friday night.
Monday 24th: Blue Lagoon afternoon then Airport.
My questions are as follows:
1. Have we missed anything that we should definitely do/see?
2. What to do on the Monday morning?
3. Our flight is not till 9pm on Monday night and last bus leaves Blue Lagoon at 3pm, which gets us to the airport far too early, so does anyone have any suggestions? Taxi? If so, how much would it roughly be for a taxi from Blue Lagoon to Airport?
4. Money - I’ve read on this forum that it’s best to take your debit card over there and withdraw money direct from the ATM, is this true?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
