Keflavik International Airport
**(Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)
Keflavik International Airport is Iceland's main arrival point. Iceland's largest airfield stands on a peninsula, two miles west of the small town of Keflavik and 30 miles west of the capital Reykjavik.
Hire a car in Keflavik to explore the city and, if you are travelling with children, be sure to check out the Giantess in the Cave. Based on the fictional character from the Herdís Egilsdóttir book, this life-size replica is five metres high and sits in a rocking chair. For something a bit more educational why not take a trip to the Duushús Museum, where there are several exhibition halls including the Reykjanes Heritage Museum.
If you hire a car at Keflavik Airport the temptation is to head straight off to Reykjavik. If you've time, it's worth having a look at Kaflavik itself first though. This is an old fishing town with a small harbour and surrounded by old lava fields. Its attractions include a replica of Leif Eriksson's Viking longboat and the Blue Lagoon, an open-air thermal bathing spot. If you do drive to Reykjavik, you'll be able to see the main sights, including the shops, bars, restaurants, museums and the extraordinary modern Hallgrímskirkja Church, Iceland's tallest building.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
