Getting Here

Our base of operations is in the north of Iceland.  All International flights arrive at Keflavik in the south of Iceland. This is 45 minutes outside of Iceland's capital, Reykjavik. The Troll Peninsula in the north where we are based is approximately 5 hours from Reykjavik by car or 35 minutes via domestic flight.

With our programs the first day is the arrival day and we ask guests to arrive at Akureyri in the late afternoon/ early evening as a group dinner is served at the lodge upon arrival. We provide the transfer from Akureyri to the the lodge (approximately 50 minutes).  On the final day of the program we recommend that guests take an evening flight out of Akureyri so that they can get the most out of skiing or riding on that day.

DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

Once you land in Keflavík if you wish to take a flight to our base in the north there are 3 options.  

AIRICELAND CONNECT FROM REYKJAVIK TO AKUREYRI
Transfer (approximately 45 minutes) from the Keflavik International Airport (KEF) to the Reykjavik Domestic Airport (RKV) to take a 35 minute flight to Akureyri (AEY).  Please note that the domestic airline servicing Akureyri is AirIceland Connect  (not the same as IcelandAir). Transfer service options between Keflavik International Airport and Reykjavik Domestic airport:

Please keep in mind that a minimum of 2 hours is required from the time your international flight lands in Keflavik until the departure of the domestic flight in Reykjavik. Passengers can experience delays with customs and baggage collection and the transfer time between airports is 45 minutes. It is necessary to arrive at the Reykjavik domestic airport at least 30 minutes prior to departure. The domestic airport is very small and easy to navigate. 

AIRICELAND CONNECT FROM KEFLAVIK AIRPORT TO AKUREYRI
In February of 2017 AirIceland Connect began operating a limited number of direct flights between Keflavik International Airport (KEF) and Akureyri Domestic Airport (AEY) in connection to international flights via Keflavík. Please confirm that your airline has an agreement with AirIceland to check your luggage through to Akureyri as not all airlines accommodate this. 

PRIVATE CHARTER
Charter your own ride with Eagle Air or Norlandair straight from Keflavik International airport or Reykjavik airport to Akureyri.


CAR RENTAL

Some guests prefer to do some sightseeing before or after their program so there is an option to rent a car and drive from Reykjavík to Akureyri where you can return the car so that you are not paying for unused days*. There are a number of car rental operations at the Keflavík airport and in Reykjavík. Please keep in mind that there is a typically a surcharge for one way rentals. 

 The scenic drive up north takes approximately 5.5 hours (this is very dependent on road conditions and we do recommend a 4x4 vehicle during the winter and early spring).  

*If you are renting a car and keeping it through the duration or your trip you can drive directly to our base. Please contact us for directions.
