Stragically located at Iceland’s southwestern corner close to the country’s main centre of population, the Reykjanes region is home to Keflavík International Airport and the port of Keflavík.
An easy 45-minute drive from Reykjavík, the world’s most northerly capital city, Keflavík lies within easy reach of many of Iceland’s most popular natural attractions and offers a well-developed tourism, transport and communications infrastructure.
Keflavík is also well known within the international cruise industry for its unique location as a port situated only five minutes from a major international airport. Keflavík is therefore ideal for cruise ships that make their passenger and crew exchange by flying them in at the doorstep of Keflavík International Airport.
Picture yourself at a place where a massive rift in the earth’s surface marks the meeting place of two continents: a point on the planet where two tectonic plates split, Europe and America separate, and the Old World meets the New. Welcome to Reykjanes, gateway to Iceland.
For sheer convenience, nowhere in Iceland beats Reykjanes. Home to Keflavík Airport and the Leifur Eiriksson International Air Terminal, the region provides a first glimpse of Iceland for almost every visitor to the country, along with a comprehensive range of tourist facilities all located within a stone’s throw of the terminal building. These include hotels and guesthouses, car rental, fishing, sea angling, whale watching, horse rental and a well-stocked private aquarium and marine museum, not to mention the soothing waters of the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most visited tourist attraction and the ideal place at which to round off a visit to Reykjanes.
Thank you for choosing Reykjanes. We wish you a pleasant and happy stay.
