Keflavik Tour Ideas
10 hours 30 minutes
Spend a day at the incredible Langjökull glacier, Iceland's second largest ice cap. After being picked up from your hotel in Reykjavik you will first get to travel over the ice on a thrilling snowmobile adventure on the west side of the glacier, before descending into the glacier itself on a visit to the man made ice cave. Hear about how this ice cave was made and see for yourself the layers of ice that form the glacier. You will be accompanied by an English speaking guide, and you can learn more from the personal in-bus touch-screen audio guide that is offered in 10 languages.

Things To Do in Keflavik & Reykjavik Keflavik Airport Layover Ideas
Things to do in Keflavik if you have a Reykjavik Keflavik Airport Layover or Extended Reykjavik Keflavik Airport Stopover
If you have an extended layover at the Reykjavik Keflavik Airport or staying in town, why not consider getting out with some fun activities? We list a few here and there are many more on Reykjavik.LayoverIdeas.com
The Blue Lagoon hot spring spa is the perfect place to go and relax after a long haul flight. You can swim in the hot springs to warm up after being out in the freezing weather, have a massage or just relax in the warm water. Buses from the airport go directly to the hot springs so no matter the length of your layover you should have time for a little of this self indulgence.
Leaving from Keflavik, harbour boating tours take travellers out to sea, where the opportunities for spotting whales and dolphins abound. These tours generally last about three hours and the amazing sea mammals often come close up to the boat with the larger specimen making the people on board feel very small. On return it is almost a necessity to have a quick dip in the hot springs to warm up after your marine adventure.
The Viking Ship Islendingur
Islendingur, an Icelandic-built replica of a Viking longship was competed in 2000, exactly a millennia after the first European set foot in North America. It set sail from Iceland on a 4,400 nautical mile journey to the eastern seaboard of Canada and the United States and now rests in Reykjanesbær where travellers are welcomed aboard to indulge in the experience of Iceland’s first settler as well as many other Nordic adventurers.
As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to the Reykjavik Keflavik Airport in time for your connection and enjoy your layover city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
