Travel to Iceland
It is possible to travel by sea to Iceland but most of us will travel by air.
The nearest airport is Keflavik (KEF) south of Reykjavik. It is about an hour-and-a-half drive from Skálholt. For those who want to explore Reykjavik, it is possible to arrive a day or two early. There are good transfers from Keflavik to Reykjavik which take 45 -60 minutes.
Please note: as we will be travelling by air, we are hoping to offset the carbon emissions by planting one or more trees. More information will be shared later.
Travel to Skálholt - 4 May
There is no public transport to Skálholt so buses will be arranged to and from the venue (or hotel for those choosing that option).
More details will be available as people's arrival times are confirmed.
We expect that this will be:
From Keflavik - transport to meet the afternoon flights.
From Reykjavik - from the main bus station, departing in time to arrive for the evening meal.
Return journeys - 9 May
Return transport to Keflavik and Reykjavik will be arranged.
More details will be available as people's departure times are confirmed.
If you wish to stay in Reykjavik to extend your visit, transport to the bus station can be arranged.
It is, of course, possible for to rent a car from the airport. This will give flexibility on arrival and return from Skálholt and the possibility of visiting other parts of Iceland before or after the Annual Meeting.Pilgrimage: Hear the Land Speak - Iceland 2022
