Arrive at the Keflavik International Airport at approximately 06:20 from Denver International Airport in Colorado. Proceed along with other passengers to Passport Control then to baggage claim and the ARRIVING DUTY-FREE STORE, unique to Iceland in the baggage claim area. We highly recommend this option as spirits, beer, wine, confections and tobacco products are highly priced and heavily taxed on the Icelandic economy. Proceed through customs to the arrivals hall. Our driver will have a sign with your name and our logo in the arrivals hall. The drive from the International airport to Reykjavik will be about 45 minutes. Continue on (after a brief stop ( possibly for breakfast at a bakery or local hotel ) to the Hotel Glacier Lagoon an approximate 4-hour drive arriving around 2:00 PM. Check-in and put your plan in this area together for the coming three days with your driver guide. Perhaps the focus today since this will be November will be the shorter drive from the hotel to Skaftafell Park for photos there and possible Northern Lights.
