…to and from Keflavik and downtown Reykjavik, an odd curiosity until you see the distance involved. Instead, passengers make reservations on a number of shuttle bus services which then provide transportation door-to-door.
We used Iceland Excursions / Gray Line Iceland and purchased our tickets in advance via their website (a discount was offered for round-trip purchase rather than separate one-way tickets.)

Please note, however, that downtown Reykjavik is characterized by small, one-way and byzantine streets. If your reservation is on a large bus, don’t be surprised when it arrives at the city’s central bus hub and you transfer to a smaller vehicle. It’s handled well and drivers and personnel are there to assist in transferring your bags from one shuttle to another. Our’s took less than 5 minutes. To continue reading about Reykjavik, click here.
