Getting to Iceland
Since Iceland is isolated from the rest of Europe in the north Atlantic Ocean, there are only two ways to get there:
By air: Direct flights to Iceland from Europe are about 4-5 hours. From North America, they are 5-6 hours. From other countries, you will have to transfer in Europe. Most flights arrive to the Keflavik International Airport.
