- Can You See the Northern Lights in the Summer?

This is why they are mainly seen within the Arctic Circle.

- How to get from Keflavik Airport to Reykjavik There are many ways to get from the airport to the city, depending on how much luggage you have, how much flexibility you need, and how much you are willing to pay. Keflavik is a short distance to the city of Reykjavik, but it is much too far to walk.
- Guide to Taxis in Iceland It is possible to get around Iceland without renting a car, and you don’t have to lose out too much on choice or price, though both do become slightly more limited. There are taxi tours available, but also taxis that mainly work within Reykjavik.
- The Best Guide to Driving in Iceland Iceland, like most other countries, drives on the right side of the road. There are few one-lane bridges or one-way streets, but otherwise stick to the right. During icy or snowy weather you may be forced more central, so make sure you keep an eye out for oncoming traffic. The speed limits are written in km/h and are usually 50 km/h (31 mi/h) in urban areas, 80 km/h (49 mi/h) on gravel and 90 km/h (56 mi/h) on asphalt roads. Make sure that you stick to the limit, and there are many speed cameras across the country and there is a hefty fine if you break it.
