Things to do in Keflavík

Blue Lagoon
Only 20 minutes’ drive from Keflavík International Airport, Iceland’s premier geothermal spa is most visitors’ first or last sight of the volcanic island. And what an impression the Blue Lagoon leaves you with. Plonked down in this steamed-up landscape of mineral-rich waters and rejuvenating silica mud, you can’t help but feel you’ve experienced life on another planet.
Thingvellir National Park
Not only is Thingvellir National Park as beautiful as a storybook, it’s also the meeting place of the oldest parliament in the world. A group of free men called The Althing met here from 930 until 1798, and thus the land holds a special place in both Icelandic and world history. It’s also an adventurer’s paradise, with a range of hiking routes, dramatic waterfalls and rugged geological formations.
Stekkjarkot
If you’ve never seen someone mowing their roof, head to Stekkjarkot. This traditional Icelandic village is built exactly as it would have looked centuries ago, turf roof and all. The small wooden fishing houses depict how life was lived during the 1700s, and make for a fascinating trip back in time.

Very good
I had a small but comfortable room with double bed and though the bathroom was supposed to be shared with the adjacent room,I had I all to myself. The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I didn't have a car and the hotel was farther from the airport than I'd expected

Not a great place staying over except being close to the airport. It’s pleasant, has all the facilities you would need but ordinary compared to Reykjavík and Iceland in general.

keflavik is just an airport town. Nonetheless, it is the place where i saw the aurora. i went for a 6 days trip and i only saw the aurora on the last day at the airport.

Only stayed the night before our flight back to UK, but driving through, the town looked pleasant enough. Good transport links to Southern Iceland & central Reykjavik.

Recommendations for Keflavík

Our car broke down in Vik. We were so lucky to have an ANGEL couple stop by to help us and stayed by us all the way back to Reyjavic/Keflavik.

It's very close to the KEF airport. 2000 ISK by taxi.

sorry but some things are best kept to oneself.

Drive south to see the lava fields.

Puffins Arctic terns

The Golden Circle

Just do it :-)

Walk outside!
