Key facts about Reykjavik

How to get cheap flights from London to Reykjavik

Tips and advice from our flight experts

Around 46 flights go from London to or via Reykjavik’s Keflavik International Airport (KEF) every week. So if you’re looking for cheap flights to Iceland’s capital, you’ve got plenty of options to weigh up. From London, you can take off from various airports, and choose from both direct and indirect flights.

For direct flights, Heathrow (LHR) is your best bet as both British Airways and Icelandair fly to Reykjavik. But flights from Gatwick (LGW) are also worth comparing, as direct Icelandair flights from here sometimes work out cheaper. Or, if you don’t mind a stop, you could fly indirect from either airport – or even London City (LCY) – which could shave a significant amount off your airfare.

If you’re basing your trip on the weather, summer – from June to August – is a popular time to go, but things like flights and accommodation can be more expensive. These are the best months if you’re planning a whale-watching tour from Reykjavik, too. You might want to consider the shoulder months of May and September, when the crowds have calmed down a little and prices tend to be lower.

For the cheapest flights from London to Reykjavik, you could try visiting in winter instead. There are benefits beyond the price: if you’re hoping to get a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis, the best time to see the Northern Lights is in the cooler, darker months between September and March.

How do I get into Reykjavik from Keflavik International Airport?
There are various buses and shuttle services at the airport, but the Flybus is one of the most convenient ways to get into the city. There’s a booking desk in the arrivals hall or you can book online in advance, and buses leave from just outside the terminal. These buses run after every flight, so there’s always one waiting, and the transfer to the city’s main bus terminal takes about 45 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on traffic. Fares cost around €24 or you can pay a bit more for a FlyBus+ ticket and get dropped at your hotel. There are taxis at the airport, too, but as it’s a long way from the city centre you’re looking at a fare of between €200 and €250.

What are the top things to do in Reykjavik?
Iceland’s capital and biggest city is possibly most well-known for the Blue Lagoon – a cobalt-coloured geothermal spa close to Reykjavik. A dip in the bath-warm waters is a must, but make sure you book ahead, as this wonder of the world is understandably popular. Also on the must-do list is whale watching, a visit to Hallgrimskirkja church, and a Northern Lights tour to try to spot the elusive Aurora Borealis.

Do I need a visa to travel to Reykjavik?
For now, British passport holders don’t need a visa to visit Iceland, but this could change when the UK leaves the EU. Always check which documents you need before you travel.
