    Keflavik Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Get your rental car at Keflavik Airport and start exploring Iceland! The airport is 50 km from Reykjavik, but it mainly serves the capital, which is the country’s largest city and its cultural center. Reykjavik has top-notch photography, art, and history museums and beautiful parks like Laugardalur Park and the sculpture garden behind the Einar Jónsson Art Museum.

    The city’s small, but there’s always something to do—a concert, a festival, a theater performance to enjoy. If you’re up for something more active, there are plenty of hiking trails to explore. At the right time of year, you can watch the northern lights. You can even go whale watching near the city.

    Reykjavik is a great destination, but there’s a lot more to see in Iceland. Why not get a longer term car rental and extend your vacation? Explore Iceland’s pristine north or the secluded beauty and fjords in the east. Learn more about Iceland’s unique nature and enjoy the breathtaking landscapes. Don’t be afraid to visit a volcano! And make sure you take a dip in some natural hot springs. You can even pick up your rental car at Reykjavik Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your Iceland adventure today!

    Keflavik Airport is also called Reykjavík–Keflavík Airport and Keflavíkurflugvöllur.

    Renting a car makes good sense if you are not staying in Reykjavik, or intend to visit some of the more remote locations. During winter months you have to be prepared for driving in some pretty adverse weather so pay close attention to the roads.is site before starting your journey - this will tel you in pretty much real time which roads are closed and which others are potentially hazardous. Icelanders are polite & helpful, so in this respect driving is a pleasure compared to trying to the same in the UK!
