Car Hire:  Keflavik Airport Useful Information

Keflavik Airport (KEF) is the main international airport in Iceland. As the largest airport in the country, this is the main transport hub in Iceland. Keflavik Airport car hire is extremely popular with business travellers and holiday makers who are visiting this unique country. 

The Airport is located near the town of Keflavik, about 45 kilometers (28 miles) southwest of the capital city, Reykjavik. Here's an overview of driving to and from Keflavik Airport, including main routes and distances to cities and towns with your rental car:

Driving from Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik:

The most common route from Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik is to take Route 41 (Reykjanesbraut), which connects the airport to Reykjavik.

The drive from Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik typically takes around 45 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic conditions.

Driving from Keflavik Airport to Other Towns and Attractions:

If you plan to explore other parts of Iceland, Keflavik's proximity to the country's main attractions makes it a convenient starting point.

The famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is located nearby, just a short drive from the airport.

Driving along the scenic Reykjanes Peninsula, you can visit attractions like the Gunnuhver geothermal area, Krýsuvík geothermal field, and the Bridge Between Continents.

To reach other major destinations in Iceland, such as Akureyri in the north or Vik in the south, you can use Route 1 (the Ring Road), which encircles the island. Keep in mind that driving times to these destinations can be considerably longer.

Navigation and Road Signs:

Road signs in Iceland are generally clear and easy to follow. Major roads are well-marked, and most signs include both Icelandic and English text.

Consider using a GPS or navigation app to help you navigate, especially if you plan to explore more remote areas of the country.

Weather Conditions:

Iceland's weather can be unpredictable, with changes in conditions, especially in the winter. Be prepared for rain, snow, and strong winds, and drive cautiously, especially in icy or snowy conditions.

Safety Tips:

Gas stations can be less frequent in rural areas, so keep an eye on your fuel level and fill up when necessary.

Always carry emergency supplies, including warm clothing, food, and water, as you may encounter remote areas with limited services.

Driving to and from Keflavik Airport provides a convenient way to explore Iceland's diverse landscapes and attractions. Whether you're starting your journey in Reykjavik or heading to other parts of the country, driving offers the flexibility to experience Iceland at your own pace.
