We stayed in an Airbnb in an neighborhood called Vesturbær which was similar to a hostel with private rooms.
Not using the public transit much we just took the shuttles to and from the airport for convenience and explored the island on a tour bus.
You’ve been to Iceland once or twice but don’t end up tacking it to the bottom of your list because an hour or two peering out of the Keflavík International Airport windows doesn’t really count. Not only will stopping in Iceland give you a chance to acclimate a little better after such a long flight, you’ll also see some pretty amazing stuff.
This country, like the rest of Scandinavia, is relatively more expensive then U.S. Prices for food and services tend to be about 150%( on average, generally) of the prices, wages and apartments are similar in cost. IcelandAir with their ‘My Stopover’ feature on flight options, you can stay in Iceland up to a week before heading to your final destination. Though we were only in Iceland for a day and a half, we were able to see a lot of the island through one of the many bus tours. There are several different types of tours that you can take depending on your interests. Iceland also is home to one of the best places to go scuba diving, and even has volcanoes you can go inside of.
