How to get there
From KEF airport, a great option is the flybus: https://www.re.is/flybus/.
The buses are scheduled to leave the airport according to flight arrivals (and will adapt to delayed flights); and from the city they depart every 30min between 2:00am and 22:30. The journey takes around 45 min. You can take the bus to/from the central bus stop (4500 ISK return) or to/from your guesthouse/hotel/apartment/university (5500 ISK return ticket). The latter involves a guided transfer to a smaller shuttle at the central bus station. More info on their website.
Icelandic people mainly use cards. If you feel more comfortable having a bit of cash with you, use a cash machine once you are in Reykjavik. All taxis, buses, restaurants, shops usually prefer cards. Don’t forget your pin number! Tipping is not expected in Iceland, not even in taxis.
Icelandic water is one of the best in the world so please consider your health and the environment and do not buy bottled water.
