Situated on Iceland’s Southern Peninsula, the municipality of Reykjanesbaer comprises the towns of Keflavik and Njarðvík, plus the village of Hafnir. Keflavik is the larger of these two towns and also the most important, as it’s home to Iceland’s main international airport. Since getting around this area and exploring further afield is most practical when done by car, you can make your trip far more comfortable and convenient with a car rental from Enterprise Rent-A-Car upon your arrival at the airport. With an Enterprise car at your disposal for as long as you need, you can explore Reykjanesbaer at your leisure, take a drive out to Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik, or explore Iceland’s fascinating geological terrain and magnificent natural attractions throughout the country. Dormant and extinct volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, and roaring waterfalls are all within reach.

Keflavik Airport, also known as Reykjavik-Keflavik Airport, is Iceland’s principal airport. It is the main arrival point for international visitors heading for the capital, Reykjavik, and for those setting off to other parts of the country. A shuttle bus service operates at Keflavik Airport every 15 minutes, and the Enterprise airport branch can easily be reached by taking a quick shuttle from the arrivals terminal to the car rental area. The Enterprise branch is prominently located on Arnarvollur in the airport’s car rental area, where their friendly staff will be happily waiting to serve you.
Reykjanesbaer’s main population centre is the town of Keflavik, which is located less than two miles from the airport. Being the most developed area in Reykjanesbaer, it’s the best place for accommodation and shopping. The nearby town of Njarðvík is also well worth seeing, as it’s home to Viking World, a very interesting attraction. Viking World is a museum filled with fascinating artefacts of Viking lifestyle and culture, including a full-sized replica of the famous 9th-century Viking 'Gokstad Ship'. The village of Hafnir is a small, quiet, and picturesque village that is pleasant to drive through.
