Not included

Travel to and from Akureyri is not included. You'll need to also arrange for travel from Reykjavik to Akureyri. Flights from major cities in the USA (Boston, NYC), Canada (Toronto and Halifax) and Oslo have good deals on air travel. Better for you to make your own arrangements so that you can take advantage of Iceland if you'd like.

​Check out: wowair.ca for inexpensive options.

​Icelandair travels to and from Reykjavik and most North American, European and Scandinavian countries.

Some of you might want to take the six hours scenic route from Reykjavik to Akureyri on a Greyhound bus. Others might be interested in a 40-minute panoramic flight over the plateau of Iceland. Or, maybe you come one way and return the other. You have the freedom to do exactly as you wish.

If you arrive the 26th (or before) or early on the 27th, you need to get yourself to the domestic airport in Reykjavik. This is done by taxi and bus and the cost is around $150 Canadian ($105 USD) in total. You will need at least 2.5 hrs between arrival at KEF airport and departure at the RKV domestic airport.
