Afterwards, continue into Reykjavik. The afternoon and evening is yours to explore this compact city. Be sure to check out the new Harp Opera house on the harbour. Approximately 1 hour from the airport.

This may affect the pick-up and drop-off locations for your activities and transfers. If you have airport transfers with FlyBus, you will need to carry your luggage (200 metres to 300 metres) to / from the bus stop to your hotel.
