TA has to be the best travel site for trip planning and the local experts and recent travelers have yet to steer me wrong. I arrive from Denver at 6:00 AM on August 9 and depart at 1:10 PM on August 11th heading to Oslo.I'm thinking the Reykjavik card may be my best option for travel as I'm going to AirBnB while I'm there. It looks like Gray line is probably my best bet for airport transfer.
I have a question about travel to and from the Viking Museum near the airport. It looks like a great way to relax with a breakfast after an overnight flight as well as spend some time before I can check into my room. I don't think I want to walk the 1 hour 45 minutes each way but is it so close that a cab drive might not want to take me? I think it's not on the Reykjavik card list so I'll pick up the card when I arrive into town.
If I don't rent a car I'll have to take a tour to the Bridge Between Continents or any other out of town sites. If I don't do any of the out of town thermal pools I can do one of the city facilities. I think the blue lagoon might be worth a trip as a bucket list item although it looks like using that trip as an airport transfer is very expensive. If I were to decide to do any day tours I might just skip the Reykjavik card although I much prefer traveling on my own to going with groups.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
