So you are eager to visit Iceland? Then you have basically two options on how to get there. The first one is to come by plane, the other one – available only to Europeans – is to come by ferry from Denmark.
To Iceland by plane:
- Approximately 96% of visitors come to Iceland by plane so there is a good chance you are one of them. This option is really quick and relatively cheap. In this case, you´ll land at the Keflavík international airport.
- To find the best fair flight ticket prices, just use azair.com for low cost airlines or momondo.com, kayak.com or skyscanner.com for classic air carriers.
- If you use Icelandair for your intercontinental flight, you might consider to take advantage of their overstop option and spend up to a week here in Iceland literally for free.
Sail to Iceland by boat:
- Go to Iceland by ferry MS Norröna from Hirthals (Denmark) to Seyðisfjörður (Iceland)! The ferry is operated by a Faroese company Smyril line and you can book or look for your tickets here. The price really differs with the season of the year and there are 4 different tariff based on the season. The ferry goes once a week during the off season and twice a week in the main season.
- You can have an overstop on Faroe Islands on your way, which is a possible advantage.
- the greatest advantage of this option is that you can take your own car (up to 4 meters high and 15 meters in length) or motorcycle for your Icelandic adventure and therefore spare quite a lot of money.
