Day 1: Arrival in the Land of Fire and Ice
Keflavik international airport – Reykjavik
Approximate distance: 50 km / 30 miles
Once you have landed at Keflavik Airport in Iceland, please pick up your luggage and head through customs. Collect your rental car at the airport, make sure you receive a tablet with protective case and chargers, and proceed to your hotel in Reykjavik. The rest of the day is yours to rest and use at your own leisure.
You might consider a visit to the National Museum, which focuses on the cultural history of Iceland. The axe and the block used at Agnes Magnusdottir’s execution is on display here as well as the jaw bones of Agnes and Fridrik. Another history-themed experiecne we recommend is Arbaejar Open Air Museum, a short drive from the center of Reykjavik. The museum is a “village” of over 20 buildings from Reykjavik’s history brought together. You can stroll from house to house and see how people lived in the olden days, and how Reykajvik changed from a collection of turf farmhouses to a modern city. Sometimes you might see events such as living history demonstrations and craft days.
Please note check-in for most hotels begins at 14:00 – 16:00 (2:00pm-4:00pm)
