Reykjavik
Reykjavík is well-connected to the rest of the world these days, with an impressive number of flights arriving to and from Europe and North America. The city’s main airport is at Keflavík, around 30 miles west of the capital; regular buses shuttle air passengers to and fro, providing a much cheaper service than a taxi, albeit slightly slower. By far the best way to get around the center of Reykjavik is on foot, though buses operate throughout the central and suburban districts, and taxis are also available. For exploring beyond the capital, you can easily rent a car or take a bus (either a public one or on a scheduled tour) around Route 1, the highway that circles the country, though bear in mind parts of it can close during bad weather.
