Map and Directions


The most common and economical way of getting to Grettir from Keflavík international airport is to use the Flybus shuttle service. They depart from right outside the terminal at Keflavik Airport and will take you to Reykjavik in only 40 minutes. The Flybus is connected to all arriving and departing flights at Keflavik airport so there should be one waiting for you as you exit the international zone. Tickets for the Flybus are to be bought at their ticket booth, just by the right side exit, and cost 1950 isk. All the Flybus coaches offer wireless internet free of charge. For more information about the Flybus and tickets please visit the Flybus homepage!

The Flybus makes a final stop at BSI Bus Terminal in the center of Reykjavik and on foot Grettir is only some 20 minutes away. It is a short walk but as we assume guests will be carrying luggage we recommend bridging the short distance by taking one of the taxis that await outside the Bus Terminal.

The main entrance to Grettir is from Laugavegur 28A, in a small back house on Reykjavík’s main shopping street. The entrance to Grettir is through a gated underpass, right between the “Reykjavík Backpackers” hostel and “Eva”, a woman’s clothing store. Another landmark to look for is the hardware store “Brynja”, a beautiful old style timber house, painted a vibrant red. The gated underpass is locked at night, guests will receive a code for the gate when their booking is confirmed.

Grettir Guesthouse can arrange a private pick up at the airport. Please contact us at least 24 hours ahead of time if you ar
